    A message from Dechirico: Apr 19, 2016

    Kumamoto Earthquake Relief
    Last year, I made a song called "Kumamoto." It was a love letter to a place I often went, that I could see everyday from my town just across the border in Oita. The earthquakes that occurred recently there have left many dead and wounded, and many more without a home. This has left me feeling sad and a little helpless.

    We donated all sales of "Kumamoto" made on Bandcamp (digital and physical) until May 31, 2016, to earthquake disaster relief. We will be donating all proceeds to AAR Japan, an international NGO based in Japan.
    Even if you're not interested in the music, please consider donating directly to AAR Japan. And please share this post as well. Thank you.

    Here is the link for the song:…/dechirico-kumamoto-k…
    昨年、「熊本」という曲を作りました。それは大分の県境を渡ってすぐの私の町から毎日見ることができ、よく行った大好きな場所へのラブレターのようなもの でした。そこでは四月に起こった大地震の影響で 数十人が死亡、負傷者もたくさん、避難所に避難している方も多いようです。とても悲しく自分が無力に感じました。
    私とJacktone Recordsという企業はBandcampで5月31日まで「熊本」という曲の売上を全て地震災害救済へ差し上げる事を決めました。売上は全て国際NGOのAAR Japanへ寄付します。
    曲に興味がない方は直接AAR Japanへ寄付する事をご検討お願い申しあげます。それから、これをシェアしてください。よろしくお願い致します。

    Dechirico (JKTN004) launches our Jacktone 7" series.

    Dechirico is a new project from Adam Douglas, also known as Kemek.

    The guiding rhythm for Dechirico is Klaus Dinger's Neu! beat, an eighth note motorik pulse that is sublimely perfect in its driving precision. Dechirico is an attempt to update that motorik sound using modern production methods while still maintaining the spirit of the original records.

    "There were three great beats in the 70s: Fela Kuti's Afrobeat, James Brown's funk, and, Klaus Dinger's Neu! beat." - Brian Eno

    Dechirico's release with us features two tracks, Kumamoto and Kumaso. Kumamoto is melody-driven, catchy, and would not be out of place on a mixtape with Stereolab and Mouse on Mars. The B-side, Kumaso, reminds us of an electronic post rock adaptation of BOC's Dayvan Cowboy that puts you in a trance with its driving beat before sending you into space.

    From aQuarius Records, SF:
    "Some serious Klaus Dinger worship here from electronic producer Adam Douglas (aka Kemek) whose new Dechirico project employs motorik rhythms to two sunny vibrational pop-kraut instrumentals. While those influences have been mined plenty over the years, there is something still so deeply satisfying in these two buoyant and bouncy tracks that avoid an obvious aping of style but instead get to the sweet core of why that music still matters. Ear-candy!"

    Dechirico currently lives in Japan.
