DARTRIIX is a sporadic but permanent collaborative project between two of op.discs label heads, Fumiya Tanaka and yoshihiro HANNO aka RADIQ. After 6 years of absence, DARTRIIX finally makes their return with this intensive double pack LP Flying One Hand, which is a good surprise to us.
During recent years, Berlin-based Fumiya Tanaka has established himself as one of the most impressive figure in Europe’s minimal scene after successive releases from Perlon. His tireless DJ touring rewarded in the form of impassioned supports from audiences in Germany, UK, France, Italy and Romania. On the other hand, with a number of quality releases like Eastern Hemispheres EPs on Euro-Moroccan imprint Cosmo Records and highly acclaimed 2013 double pack “Vida Noir” on op.disc, yoshihiro HANNO aka RADIQ have made reputation as a master of carefully arranged, funk-infused minimal.
6 years of break seems fairly enough for them to re-mature perspectives on their collaboration project. Between Paris and Berlin, they exchange ideas and basis of tracks to elaborate their images on respective tracks. In consequence, those countless interchanges made this “Flying One Hand” album a deep yet intricate piece of work. Simply put, his album offers up an indivisibly-united ideas and techniques from two of most illustrious producers of Japan’s modern minimal music. [txt from ]
