Shin-Juke Vol. 2

Japanese producers were quick to embrace footwork, the stark, accelerated dance music that originated in Chicago and gained wider global attention via the UK's Planet Mu label. But while most of the homegrown productions to date have been content to hover at the level of pastiche, Hiroshima's CRZKNY is making the music his own. Following up on last year's politicised Struggle Without End and ABC (Atomic Bomb Code) EPs, he's just released a confident debut album, Absolute Shitlife. Pick up a copy and you can get discounted entry to CRZKNY's show at Loft on Sunday, where he's joined by recent footwork converts Satanicpornocultshop and a host of local DJs, plus unhinged guitar bands including The Mornings and Dotsuitarunen.
