BBC Radio 3 Late Junction: Foodman’s mixtape

Jennifer Lucy Allan serves up a tasty mixtape concocted by Japanese producer Foodman. Plus New Orleans noise punk, vocals from Mexican churches and a techno cover of Lou Reed.

Jennifer Lucy Allan serves up a tasty mixtape concocted by Japanese electronic producer Foodman aka Takahide Higuchi. Based in Nagoya in central Japan, his sound is influenced by everything from Chicago footwork and psych-rock to video game soundtracks and traditional Okinawan folk music. His new album Yasuragi Land is inspired by simple pleasures: eating at Michinoeki (motorway service stations) and visiting his local Sentō (public baths). For his Late Junction mixtape, he reflects on these places of calm, with music discovered at the very service stations and public baths he visits, as well as dynamic percussion from his mother’s native Okinawa, some 90s video game music and the chimes of a music box.

Elsewhere in the show, there’ll be gnarly noise punk demos from New Orleans’ Special Interest and a Lou Reed cover by Birmingham techno musician Regis. Plus the results of Polish vocalist Antonina Nowacka’s recent trip to Oaxaca in Mexico, during which she recorded herself singing in small churches along her journey.
