about

Since releasing his first cassette in 2012 through Orange Milk, Takahide Higuchi aka Foodman has become an unofficial ambassador for Japan's weird electronic music scene. He is recognized for mixing juke/footwork, minimal electronics, and avant-garde pop and collage sounds with an irreverence and sense of exploration that is distinctly Japanese. That adventurous nature continues on Ez Minzoku (which translates to Easy Ethnic) with its use of bright, plastic-sounding MIDI instruments and extreme negative space minimalism. Juxtaposed against blasts of harmony a hazy vestigial juke vibe, Ez Minzoku sounds like a new micro-genre of its own.
