MTR001 - Moment (Selected Works 2012-2017)

7FO, pronounced ‘nana-ef-oh’, is the Osaka based producer with releases for RVNG Int., EM Records, Bokeh Versions and Métron Records.
The mysterious Japanese figure recorded Moment at home, processing guitar sounds, using a sampler, synthesizer and junk equipment. Following in the footsteps of the ambient giants of his native lands, 7FO’s music continues this illustrious heritage whilst offering something fresh, modern and beautifully rendered. He describes his own sound as ‘gorgeous sustained tones and dreamlike oscillations that drift through the inorganic/electronic world reverberating through our subconscious creating sonic fables in our minds’.

MTR002 - Meitei - Komachi

Meitei is a Japanese producer based in Hiroshima. He has released with Evening Chants and Métron Records. His work is inspired by what he calls ‘the lost Japanese mood’, in reference to a cultural identity and aesthetic that is slowly drifting from the nations consciousness.
Haunting and delicate, distant and timeless, Komachi is awash with white noise, complex field recordings, and the hypnotic sounds of flowing water. Though contemporary, Komachi’s lineage can be traced back to the floating worlds of Ukiyo-e and Gagaku via the prism of '80s Japanese ambient pioneers, and '90s pastoral sample-based artists such as Susumu Yokota and Nobukazu Takemura.
