現代の音楽家は様々な側面/表情を持つことでバランスを形成する。中田ヤスタカcapsuleの最新作でみせたエレクトロニカへの本気は、きゃりーPerfumeといった“ポップ”や“アート”的側面があってこそであり、それはTakmaの活動にも同じ。Serphとして圧倒的なセールスを叩き出しながら、昨年末には全く無名の女性ボーカリストNozomiとの歌モノ・ユニットN-qiaで新たな可能性を開示。そしてReliqは日々ハイスピードに刷新されるベース・ミュージックを咀嚼し、よりリズム・アプローチでの多様性を押し進めたこの決定打によってエレクトロニカを未来へと導いてくれる。

Music today develops its balance by possessing various dimensions and expressions. The earnestness towards electronica that DJ/musician/producer Yasutaka Nakata displays in the latest release from CAPSULE, his house/electronica/techno-pop unit, is derived from the ‘pop’ or ‘artistic’ profiles of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu or Perfume of whom he has been famously producer for. The same applies for the works of Takma, whom while recording massive sales as electronica artist Serph AND also runs the alias project Reliq, unveiled his new capabilities end of last year, by teaming up with an absolutely unknown femal vocalist Nozomi, to form a new unit with vocals, N-qia. Here, Reliq has successfully processed the high-speed regenerating bass music to guide electronica to the new future with this mighty blow that pushes forward the spreading variety with a new embracement of rhythm.

 


(実際的な)匿名性を保ちながら、作家性の強いドリーミーなエレクトロニカを発表し続けるSerphの、別名義による2作目。あの繊細で複雑極まりないサウンドメイクと美麗なメロディーはそのままに、ダンス・ミュージックに寄せているのがこちらの特徴。よりリズム・コンシャスになっているので、ある意味、Serphよりカジュアルに聴けます。ジューク的なアプローチを取り込んでいる曲もありますよ。

[English Translation]
This is the second release from the side project of Serph, the practically anonymous Tokyo residing male artist who has been releasing dreamy electronica tunes of authorial qualities, while revealing absolutely none of his identity including name and personal appearance. Leaving the delicate but yet extremely complicated sound make and beautiful melodies intact, the music here are geared more towards dance music, which makes this album highly individual. Being rhythm-conscious makes it somewhat more casually approachable compared to Serph's works, and some tracks actually incorporate the pleasant touch of juke music.
