Foodman debuts on Palto Flats with new EP, Moriyama

Twistedsoul- Foodman

Nagoya-based experimental producer Takahide Higuchi aka Foodman just unveiled his new album called Moriyama via Palto Flats.

The EP takes its name from the district he lives and represents some of Foodman’s most intriguing, accessible work to date.

Opening with Mizuboro,” (meaning water bath) the track elicits the feeling of soaking in a tub of warm, bassy synth pads, metronomic patterns of woodwinds and skittering percussion suitable for late-night

Elsewhere, on “Soudesu,” he dabbles with traditional instrumentation and vocal forms to create a unique post-ambient/dance hybrid of familiar sounds reconfigured.

Moriyama follows his footwork-inspired Pokopoko EP for Plastic Bags, as well as his recent LP Aru Otoko No Densetsu, for Sun Araw’s Sun Ark label.
