Boomkat Product Review:
Vox Populi’s adventures in the Land of the Rising Sun, reworked by by Japan Blues, Tim Karbon, Hiroaki Oba and Shizka for the 2nd volume of ‘Field Works’
Howard Williams a.k.a. Japan Blues opens with a strolling, neon-lit rejig of ‘Chapter V’, marking up his 2nd outing of the year after a remix of Kufuki’s ‘Dodome EP’, while French producer Tim Karbon reworks ‘Chapter VI’ as a dextrously fluid fray of darting percussion and smeared arps for the canniest dancers.
Hiroaki Oba brings the vibe up to speed with debonaire ‘90s deep house styles in the satin smooth flow of their ‘Chapter VII’ remix, and Inoue Shirabe a.k.a. Shizka melts ‘Chapter VIIII’ as a mystic, airborne shimmy with effortlessly elegant results.
