The Japanese Popstars Disconnect/Reconnect

  • Artists The Japanese Popstars, Green Velvet, Ryan Vail
  • Release Date 2013-07-15
  • Labels Bedrock Records
  • Catalog BEDTJP01CD
  • Description HARDER... DARKER... STRONGER... Disconnect/Reconnect is the third studio album from The Japanese Popstars, and the first new music since 2012s IMS anthem, Matter Of Time (featuring Green Velvet), caught the ears of Laurent Garnier, Francois K, Carl Cox and John Digweed, who promptly signed TJP to his Bedrock label.

    After flirting with major label success via an album deal with Virgin/EMI Records and getting to work with their heroes including The Cures Robert Smith, The Japanese Popstars have returned to the underground and the sound that first brought them so much attention. Now a duo, aka Gary Curran and Gareth Donoghue, theyre once again making the music they love.

    At the core of The Japanese Popstars is the contrast between the dark and the light, and while Disconnect/Reconnect is brimming with tough, punchy techno, it features the occasional moment of blissful electronica that punctuated earlier albums such as We Just Are. Ultimately built for dark rooms and nocturnal festival shows, Disconnect/Reconnect is a back to basics release that finds The Japanese Popstars gaze fixed firmly on the future.
