Japan’s Shinichi Osawa is one of the most revered artists in the country going back as early as 1991. He has a variety of monikers, including the critically-acclaimed Mondo Grosso, as well as Rhyme So and an orchestral project named Thousand Tears Orchestra. Having worked and remixed with artists as diverse as Boys Noize to Felix the Housecat to Digitialism to Duck Sauce to Fischerspooner, his new EP on Dirtybird, “FCKNJP” is his first original EP under his given name in nearly 15 years.
Creative and intense, the title track is not for timid dancefloors, while “LUVTECHNO” is reminiscent of a certain techno legend’s iconic and spastik anthem.
It’s an honor to have Shinichi as part of the flock.
