"OORUTAICHI "Drifting my folklore""

Osaka based Oorutaichi has rubbed shoulders with Kenji Haino asnd Ruins, collaborated with oddball popsters Momus and
Taku Hannoda, and been producing his solo take on pop since 1999 .The present release is a mixture of tracks from his 2003 debut CD
Oorutaichi Yori Yoyo and an even earlier EP also bearing the title Drifting my folklore.
Sadly, the heady T Rex homage “Negro shrine jungle” is not included , but here are ten examples of Oorutaichi’s high-spirited and
outlandish styling,often featuring invented language. There's plenty of Residents-style weirdness and geeky Aphex Twin-esque mucking
about, while his utterly synthetic sound world seems in direct descent from Yellow Magic Ochestra. A typically hyperactive multiple synth
pile-up on "Beshaby" is o$set, or possibly made worse, by a whining vocal. "Pan 1 Nonaki" is the only track to slow down, and a kind of
exotica emerge, though Oorutaichi's jungle is made of microprocessors��rather than lianas. The sturdiest song is "UiUi-Mar-Chan",
where a stuttering organ supports a decent melody, like a high speed sea shanty from some digitized ocean.
In Oorutaichi’s world the machines have long since taken over, but the e$ort has sent them round the bend, where they encounter
their dada re%ections. Manically cheerful, it’s like being trapped in a gym full of exercising holograms, and the song "MISEN Gymnastics"
indeed incorporates a keep fit routine. - CLIVE BELL(WIRE Magazine)


"OORUTAICHI"MISEN Gymnastics""

Japanese bedroom Pro-Tools wizard Oorutaichi only plays the way-out synth-pop sounds. This is space disco that really does chuck
anything remotely earthbound out of the cockpit. "Misen Gymnastics" takes a crisp hi-hat pulse, a touch of bongo, digital fuckery, and
a synth ri$ that sounds like a fanfare announcing cosmic dragons with glass confetti, and mixes them with enough whimsy to fend o$
Max Tundra's cronies for months. The kiddie chorus shouts in unison between Oorutaichi's el#n verses, with deft rhythmic patterns all
synched up like he rehearsed these guys a week before pressing "record." Bent wind chimes and Fender Rhodes #ll in the blank spots,
while driving it all is a bass line that curves up like it'd been warped by the sun. Underneath it all, a good, old-fashioned disco kick;
the modern dance composer refuses to die, again and again and again. - Pitchork.com


"OORUTAICHI"MISEN Gymnastics""

Hailing from Japan these guys don?ft muck around, the even make up their language and sing whatever comes to their heads whilst recording and underpin it with beeping, quirky melodies sounding as if played on kid?fs instruments - a loose percussive disco rhythm tries to keep everything togeter a bit but stumbles from time to time - cute, oddball and over the top at the same time like a Takashi Miike comedy. The IDJUT BOYS stretch the cut to a maximum disco workout and even generously treat us with a sizzling, stripped down and abstract bonus version.
