BRF名義の2016年の「BRF-KU EP」などで知られるTASHO ISHIが、WARPからのリリースで知られるミラノのLORENZO SENNIのレーベル〈Presto!?〉からリリースしたアルバム「Dentsu2060」のアナログ・リリース。

2019年にデジタルでリリースされたTASHO ISHIのアルバム「Dentsu2060」のアナログ届いています。圧倒的なエレクトロニクス、カットアップされた言葉。描かれる世界。圧巻の熱量に驚きました。現在のエレクトロニック・ミュージックの重要盤。先日の大阪でのライブも凄かったみたい。アナログのマスタリングはDubplate & MasteringのHelmut Erler。歪みの完璧な構図のアートワークのマジックと共にお楽しみください。 (サイトウ)

Tasho Ishi is a sound designer, image consultant, and advertisement critic currently working for a major record label in Tokyo. He debuted as BRF in 2016 with “BRF-KU” EP and he is active under the same moniker in the Japanese fashion market as a runway music curator. We are proud to present Dentsu2060, his LP debut, as the fifth release under our “Ten Years of Tomorrow” motto.

In a city where advertising has the leading role, how long can a style resonate? Dentsu2060 is an intricate work, a true to life representation of the city in its drifting vanity. By weaving seamlessly field recordings and melodic light points, Tasho composes an unexpected reflection to the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympic ceremony or the illuminated soundtrack of a trendy drama. His 9 compositions channel the voice of his city, offering a new, spectacular world view - overexposed under the artificial lights
