V / A // Receding Tides TAPE

  • Availability:

The 2021 Japanese badges released in May 5 by the ambient label VAAGNER in Berlin, Germany have arrived for the first time in Japan.

This work is a compilation cassette by 5 Japanese writers.Since it is about to be out of print, it will be in stock only this time.

What began with the'Surging Waves' compilation in 2018, now finds its closing pendant in'Receding Tides', which highlights a set of compositions by Japanese based ambient veterans Corey Fuller, Hakobune, Rhucle and Marty Hicks, as well as Yuto Ohashi, who has furtively been releasing exceptional ambient works since 2015.


The initial installation in the series,'Surging Waves' teemed with a sense of both, jubilant optimism and foreboding skepticism, and the mood on'Receding Tides' takes on a similar note, as three years later Japan's ambient music scene continues to face an uncertain future , and with issues further heightened by the corona pandemic.

Each piece on'Receding Tides' engulf the listener with a feeling of serenity, poise and contemplation, with the mood ruminating deeper into an emotionally introspective plain as one reaches the compilations final segment.

In the end, one of ambient musics great strengths lies in its remedial potential, and especially during these times of adversity,'Receding Tides' is a true testament as to how music can set our minds free.
