#Electronic music from Japan: #Haioka

With the "Rei Row" EP, Shintaro Haioka releases his third musical statement on Emerald and Doreen and it appears to be a statement least abstract, clostest to human nature, bearing a natural flow, though experimental ever more.
The artist aspires to communicate a universal language transferred by sampling all sorts of everyday objects like hitting PET-bottles, knocking on a desk, cutting nails… and for the first time he also articulates a message by using his voice….most of the time recording samples over and over again. The electronic treatment is a stark reminder of how the human voice works as a two-sided instrument, which is the most direct approach to music in general, but which can sound alien like no other thing on earth as well. The inherent message of the E.P. is "never be afraid to make a revolution". The artist wants to remind Japanese people of the pride they've once used to show to the world in arts and crafts and fascinating cultural achievements.

Since the effects of the earthquake in 2011 have taken a toll on society's mindset, Japan of today seems to become suppressed by political failures, rushed lifestyles and more ironies than the truths. Haioka and his artistic friends express their disapproval to those general trends through their art - like those woodblock prints which became known as Ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world- the Edo period, when Japan was developing a very bold self awareness, portrayed by a hedonistic lifestyle.), he portraits what's surrounds him by electronic music.

The interpretation is up to all of you listeners who have open ears to outstanding and highly original electronica, seeking for entertainment but also a deeper understanding

#LeSpecs: CRAIG & KARL collaboration

Just in time for summer, Le Specs was re-launched in 2006 using sixty percent of the original moulds that earned the label its status

Cool t-shirts & sweatshirts: être cécile


être cécile was founded by four individuals whose dream was to create a unique T-shirt collective inspired by French style and clean aesthetics. The brands heritage is based around ‘Cécile', grandmother to one of the founders. Cécile was an Irish born artist, living in 1960’s Paris, with a love of animal prints and a creative flair for fashion

I really love their T-shirts and sweatshirts!

From #France: Maxime Simoëns

In 2013, the Maxime Simoëns Company announced that it had partnered with the LVMH group. With this announcement, the house officially joined the ready-to-wear fashion calendar

Simoens follows his own vision and innovative style, which can best be defined as a mix of graphics and architecture. The subtle geometry of his silhouettes combines structure and fluidity. The precision of sleek lines reveals feminine sensuality and a modern yet timeless elegance

This is my fave look from the current collection:
