Review: Kakashi is the latest in a long line of largely forgotten Yasuaki Shimizu albums and side projects to be given the reissue treatment. The album was originally released in Japan by Better Days back in 1981, and saw the jazz man-turned-ambient explorer join the dots between melodious, post-punk era jazz-fusion, new age influenced downtempo grooves, dub, ambient and eccentric, hard-to-pigeonhole experimentation. While musically diverse, the album hangs together beautifully. This is primarily down to two key factors: the ubiquity of Shimizu's evocative saxophone, flute and clarinet playing, and the richness of the multi-instrumentalist's superb production.

Review: In 1988, Yasuaki Shimizu moved to Paris and collaborated with avant-garde artists such as David Cunningham of Flying Lizards (who is a special guest on this album) and Manny Elias of Tears for Fears. His second album Dementos conveyed a spirit of the times unique to Shimizu - who was at the epicentre of a world music movement that was extremely prosperous at that time. He brought his sister Mieko over from Japan and made her engage in hours of idle talk which is a constant throughout the LP and this eventually led him to conclude that human patterns of communication were indeed strange.

Review: 1987's Subliminal is one of the more eccentric albums in the bulging discography of Japanese saxophonist turned electronics wizard Yasuaki Shimizu. It was recorded in Paris and was an apparently an attempt by the composer-producer to "capture the spirit of everyday encounters". As this essential reissue proves, the album has lost none of its quirky charms over the last three decades. There are dashes of off-kilter soundtrack jazz, pitched-down synth-pop chuggers, inspired fusions of traditional French music and rubbery electrofunk, far-sighted global fusions that defy easy categorization, and moments that some may consider "Balearic". This reissue also includes two tasty new edits of album highlights from Japanism label boss Chee Shimizu, both of which expertly extend the original versions for added out-of-this-world pleasure.
