Boris is a Japanese heavy rock band that has garnered a lot of praise from much of the major
music media including Pitchfork, Spin, Rolling Stone, and NY times for its
2010 releases 『Attention Please』『Heavy Rocks』and 『New Album』.They were
also featured on the cover of the December issue of American weekly magazine CMJ and the
English online music magazine Kicking Against The Pricks, which picked
the band's album as an album of the year for 2011. Strong support from the media helped
the band to carry out a world tour which saw them play in Europe, America, Canada, Australia and of
course, their home country Japan. During that time, their new single “KIMI NO YUKUE” was
promoted as a theme song for 'ZENNIN SHIBOUDESU', which will be released
on the Nintendo 3DS and the Playstation Vita.

The band will release the label's second 12 inch remix single 'Looprider'. The
first remix was done by CRUE-L boss Kenji Takimi and 9dw and
West Japan based DJ/artist ALTZ was picked for the second remix. Known for
not only releasing his own original albums and singles from labels like BEAR FUNK in UK
and DFA in NY, but he is also a member of the highly regarded ALTZ.P, a project that started out quite
recently.「Looprider (ALTZ - Fall in Love Mix)」begins with his signature tensive minimal
funk sound that then develops into a somewhat trancey sound. Sam aka Hachback from San
Fransisco was also chosen to remix the song. He has been to Japan for his
band Windsurf's tour and released his secound album 'Zeus And Appolo', which
came out last year. Apart from his production work, he is also known as
a chief editor of Dwell, Interiror magazine, and analog synthesizer
collector: Which somehow makes a lot of sense since his sound turns out to be some of
the finest chill-out sound design. In 'Looprider' (Hatchback's Pacific Wind
Mix), he brings a gentle and peaceful dance track which represents West coast
Balearic. The original 'Looprider' piece, which is not included in this 12
inch, draws upon Black Metal influences, in particular Shoegazer linked sounds like
French group Alcest and electronica sounds by Ulver from Norway. Black metal
meets dance music scene, this 12inch promises to uncover new dimensions of Boris' unique sound and approach.
