For ten years, Kazuma Kubota has been mastering his blend of harsh noise and ambient and Utsuroi is no exception. Originally released as a limited edition cassette in 2015 by Amethyst Sunset. From the opening murky industrial stomp of “Kizu”, Kubota’s layers a perfect mix of noise which leads to a perfectly crafted mix of ambient and cut up harsh noise on “Wasurenagusa”. The second side of the record features a side-long shoegaze that displays why Kazuma Kubota is becoming a well-known name in the noise scene and will be remembered as one of the greats carrying the torch of the Japanese noise scene for many years to come. Recorded at Studio Bass On Top, Ikebukuro, Tokyo 2014.
Edited and mixed at Bedroom 2014-2015.
Mastered by Joe Panzner
