Luxury (1999)

Fantastic Plastic Machine

Electronica

Buy from Amazon.com

Rating 10/10

Buy from Amazon.com

In the middle of the '90s, Tomoyuki Tanaka, a chief editor of Japanese fashion-magazine "Brutus", just for fun originated a project called Fantastic Plastic Machine. Today he is a respectable exotic producer, DJ, an activist of the sound-recording industry, and a leader of Fantastic Plastic Machine. "Luxury" is probably the best their album. It's very dynamic, stylish, sometimes even audacious, but at the same time romantic and playful. It expands the limits of musical styles and stereotypes by combining such styles as Japanese groove, electric breakbeat, lounge, German techno, drum-n-bass, house, and others. As a result we can hear a very organic sound with influences of easy listening of the '60s, but with more complex content, playful beat, and multinational colour added by vocalists from Japan, Germany, France, and England. Tomoyuki Tanaka is a musician of the electronic renaissance, who doesn't accept any limits.
