Avec Avec – Plastic Soul EP

Release date: October 13, 2011
Label: Self-released


  1. Plastic Soul
  2. Wind Scene (Takuma remix)
  3. Kuzuha no Sunday

Avec Avec sounds like the name of a fey, Parisian indie-electro outfit, but it’s actually the alias of a Japanese chap specialising in a freaky futuristic urban sound, mashing together on the title cut some 80s digi-funk with jazzy piano tinkles in a kind of cubic blur. Each track’s a great workout for the ears and brain, with lots of hyper-colourful loops melting together for your attention.

Rating: ★★★½☆

    Cool that you found this! I’m off to see Avec Avec and Seiho at SonarSound Tokyo tomorrow. I think both of them are really promising artists!
