This month we release from the artists we have signed to our label lately, Edo Ghost is one of them. As soon as he has his first first single get recorded, we made it ready for the release thinking that it will be a good introduction to our label fan base.
Edo Ghost is a post-rock / post-metal project from composer and multi-instrumentalist, Justin North. This half Japanese, half British musician hails from London, England, but his Music is very much influenced by his second home, Tokyo.
Yurei by Edo Ghost
A lover of various styles of music, including rock, soundtrack and Jazz, this music graduate mainly works alone in the studio, playing everything himself. Subtle Japanese Elements can be heard in Edo Ghosts’ epic sound, drawing influences from numerous post rock bands, composers such as Yoko Kanno and Vangelis, and the cinematic landscape of Tokyo itself.
The Ep consists of one 12 minute epic track which is very much in the post rock genre, however, on a deeper listen, you can hear the subtle Japanese Elements within the music, reminiscent of Yoko Kanno and Vangelis, combined this with the “heavy drone riff” guitars, obviously influenced by bands like Smashing Pumpkins and God Speed You! Black Emperor, results in a cinematic experience, conjuring up images of a dark Tokyo dystopia. He describes his record as an “audible translation of the end of the world.” It doesn’t sound very sweet but he has something to offer who is searching for bitter tastes in music.
