Genre: Drift / Electronica / Beat Driven
This is a emotional based electronica/ minimalist beat /illbient project
out of Asia. The release why I say Nisei23 is emotional is the very
male/female touches shine from this release the second I put the 3"
release in to review. The delicate nature of it all. The very complex
layers of Drifts, Ambience, Soundcapes all come into the distant beats
and vocals the swell in and out through out the release. Unlike the
Kenji Siratori 3" I just reviewed as well this is a very well and stunningly
If you like projects like Sleep Research, Portishead, Star of Ash and
Robert Rich then you need read no more and seek this fine release out
asap. If you still need more of a run down then let me try to help you a
bit more. The sounds of nature mixed with the warm tones and almost
ethno vibe of this release works well this the primitive percussion. I
do want to point out that is "Milenka EP" is done fully with acoustic
guitars, pianos etc) then electronically effected and altered to make
this lovely EP. With Nisei 23 there is hope and sadness intertwined in
every track. This is what really draws me to it and I think it will do
the same to you.
The only proper way to listen to this is in a candle lite room with the
headphones on and your eyes close and ears wide open. Nisei 23 is a
project that needs to envelope you while you listen. I don't say this
often and I've been reviewing CD's for over 10 years now but " Milenka EP"
is just to damn short. I can not wait for a full length from
this artist of strength, talent and conviction. On a closing note this
is sadly limited to 50 copies an needs to be widely release for the
world to hear it. Nisei 23 will be a force to watched and take with awe
in the coming months and years.
