Altered Moods Recordings makes its first artist foray into Asia, more specifically, it sets its sights on Nagano, Japan, where it finds a fertile and quickly expanding underground scene and one of its key players, Yoshiki Tsuchiya, also known as Miruga. Miruga has made a big splash in his relatively short arc as an underground artist. He came out strong in 2012 with "Human Tube" on Anton Zap's bellwether Ethereal Sound label after a full-length digital album on Logos Recordings two years prior. The Ethereal Sounds release brought V/A opportunities on Statik Entertainment, Rawthenticity, and Badance, as well as a guest appearance on Keith Worthy's worldly Aesthetic Audio label with "The Unusual Suspects, Vol. 1." It's that connection that was the clicher for us to sign him - not because of that label's notoriety, but because of how well Miruga attends to his craft.
