Muzak

The Muzak project is an on-going series of mixes created by a group of international friends of ours. All contributors have been asked to make a selection of tunes to be distributed on this site. We aim to bring music of great variety and to upload a new mix at least every month. Enjoy
We are pleased to announce Logan Takahashi as the latest contributor to our on-going Muzak series.

For more than 7 years Logan has been one half of the electronic NYC duo Teengirl Fantasy and this April he released his debut solo album NoGeo on Ghostly International. On the album, Takahashi breaks the techniques he learned as a classically violinist. Reshaping errant rhythms, melodies and timbres into an entirely new language.

"I've always been drawn to music that exists in grey areas," says Takahashi. "From Japan's Neo Geo genre in the late '80s to Brooklyn's tabletop electronics scene in the early '00s, I've always been inspired by the notion of subverting vocabularies and creating new ones."

Logan's music builds on a sturdy rhythmic foundation and with the idea of viewing technology as something organic, his tracks gets their own distinct vibrant shape which makes you curious for more.
