Stuttering, wriggling, angelic masterpiece

Aphex Twin yesterday brings us today to the endlessly fertile & fascinating Nobukazu Takemura, via AT's casual geniusTM version of Let My Fish Loose (from 26 Mixes For Cash).

Highlights of Takemura's own remixing include his cool take on Tortoise's TNT (from A Lazarus Taxon) &, especially, his stuttering, wriggling, angelic masterpiece around Steve Reich's Proverb (from Reich Remixed - subject of a previous post here).

His own Kepler (from Scope on Thrill Jockey) is also a tasty treat...

Background here.

Here's some Takemura video action (including a Japanese language interview - English translation here):
