Japanese heavy rock -band Boris are at the height of their creative powers. Their fans include some of the world’s top artists, such as Lou Reed, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Portishead. They composed the soundtrack for the Japan Academy award winning film, “KOKUHAKU” and film director, Jim Jarmusch, asked them to record the music for his latest film, “Limits Of Control”.

March 2011 saw the release of a new L.P called “NEW ALBUM”. Highly regarded amongst Japanese fans of animation soundtracks the album has been described as a ‘virtual trip’, visual music with a defined Japanese aesthetic. The band’s dramatic evolution as been a hot topic for discussion amongst fans both old and new in Japan and abroad. The new 12” remix single “Black Original” expands the listener’s horizons even further, introducing synthesizers and industrial beats.

Highly respected Japanese DJ and producer, Kenji Takimi from the world renowned CRUE-L label, has contributed two mixes under his LUGER E-Go project guise. The “LUGER E-Go Remix” employs crazed tribal drums, new wave funk loops and a hypnotic bass -line to create a charged, psychedelic atmosphere, luring the listener into chaos. Takimi’s “LUGER E-Go Re-Boost” pushes things even further, increasing the sense of delirium.

Kensuke Saito, whose “9dw” project released an eponymous L.P of “electro fusion/boogie” in 2008 on the U.S Label, Wax Poetics, has a longstanding relationship with Boris. In 2009 they released a spilt single together called “Golden Dance Classics”, and Kensuke played synthesizers on the Boris LP, “Galaxians (Heavy Rocks)”. This working relationship led to the band inviting Kensuke to remix “Black Magic Original Woman” in the disco style he is so well know for, while maintaining the aggressive, rock feel of the original.

This release is most definitely primed for the dance floor and will surely see an even wider audience able to enjoy the unique delights of Boris.
