Album Notes
Crispy Matters began DJing in 1994 in Vancouver playing funky, jazzy house at underground parties, warehouse raves, and nightclubs. His style matured into Progressive House, Tribal Techno, Drum & Bass, and more. In 2003 he moved to Japan and started teaching English along with starting a family, continuing to DJ periodically. Then, in 2017, with the influence of his friend Adham Shaikh (Canadian electronic Global Fusion music producer), and two Japanese artists (DJ KGee and Madoka Shiva) Crispy began creating his own music. This album uses live loops sampled from the Japanese Koto stringed instrument playing the most famous Japanese melody, "Sakura", on the first, seventh and eighth tracks, and in between you will hear these other instruments;
From Africa, the Rain Caxixi and Talking Drum, the Pakawaj, Tabla, Kohl, and Dholak drums from India, the Calm Rik drum from Turkey, the Egyptian Darbouka drum, the Yanqin, Guqin, and Guzheng stringed instruments from China, the Jamaican Jaeger Shaker, and others, such as tambourines, tympani, and maracas. Defying simple classification, this album is a truly global journey meant to be listened to in one sitting, as each song builds logically into the next, starting at 61bpm and ending at 122. Crispy's children can be heard on track 3 (Japanese and English lyrics) and 6 (Japanese only), and many audio snippets from his Tokyo life, including a walk off the train into Shibuya, past the Hachiko statue, and across the Shibuya Scramble into the Starbucks. Track 5, "Enwraptured Ohm" speaks of his meditation experiences at the 10-day silent retreat called Vipassana and will give you an insight into the effect that all his music (this album and his DJ mixes), has on him and hopefully yourself. Wishing you peace, love, unity and respect.
