New Soichi Terada album

Asakusa Light’ is due out soon via Rush Hour along with two club-focused col­lab­o­ra­tive ver­sions with Masalo..

Asakusa Light comes this year via Rush Hour. A pair of col­lab­o­ra­tive, club-lean­ing remix­es with Masa­lo are also set to drop fol­low­ing the album’s release. 

Ter­a­da worked on the record for 18 months, aim­ing to recre­ate the men­tal and phys­i­cal process­es” behind his dance­floor-focused 1990s-released works.

I tried to recall my feel­ings 30 years ago, but when I tried it, I found it super dif­fi­cult,” says Ter­a­da in a state­ment. I didn’t even know what I thought about myself five years ago, and the men­tal meta­bol­ic cycle seems to be faster than I thought. I tried dif­fer­ent meth­ods, includ­ing dig­ging up my old MIDI data and com­pos­ing by remem­ber­ing old expe­ri­ences. With the help of Rush Hour, I found some of the light from my heart that I had 30 years ago. I nick­named the light I found in my heart, Asakusa Light.”
