2013: Japan & Korea’s All Kills


This year saw starlets Meg and Shiina Ringo make their return to the stage, with the latter putting out two very different tracks with two renowned producers. This track from Shiina was produced by Towa Tei, of Groove is in the Heart fame with 90s group Deelite, making Apple a very slick bit of lounge dance.

Very different is this other cut from Ringo’s collaboration album [1], Netsuai Hakkakuchuu, which was fused in some electronic toy land by Yasutaka Nakata. It’s like Danny Elfman gone 8-bit.
