Tokyo based synth group CRYSTAL have announced their first full-length album Crystal Station 64. Their music was discovered by Justice and Surkin on Myspace and was debuted on the legendary label Institubes, which led the French Electro movement together with Ed Banger. They have performed live with Boys Noize and Para One among others. Influences like Jean-Michel Jarre, Talking Heads, Art Of Noise and Telex playfully collide in this twisted homage to old-school Electro and Techno Pop. Teki Latex of the French alternative hip-hop group TTC makes an appearance on Get It, while Ryota Miyake adds layers of humor with his vocals on the slow-jam Magic and FM synth wizardry on instrumental tracks like No Fun and Jungli-la. With deep rhythm sections, outstanding pop sensibility, and a perfect crystal-colored artificiality, Crystal Station 64 goes way beyond simple fascination with Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems and the future of the internet. Perhaps it is already a classic somewhere in the far reaches of our galaxy… Besides, IKONIKA from Hyperdub rescords is collaborating on the bonus track!

Justice、Surkinにより発掘され、Ed Bangerと共にフレンチ・エレクトロを牽引した伝説的レーベルInstitubesからデビュー、Boys NoizeやPara Oneとも共演する東京のシンセサイザーバンドCRYSTALが待望のデビューアルバムを発表します。 ジャン・ミッシェル・ジャール、トーキング・ヘッズ、Art Of Noise、Telexなどメンバーがフェイバリットとする音楽への捩じれたオマージュが早送りでちりばめられたオールドスクール・エレクトロ/テクノ・ポップ集。フレンチ・ヒップホップの先駆的グループTTCで活躍したMC、Teki Latexをゲストに脱力ファンクネスが炸裂する「Get It」、三宅がボーカルを務め、アンニュイな夜のムードもユーモラスな「Magic」、センス迸るFMシンセのメロディーが印象的なインスト作「No Fun」「Jungli-la」など、全編に漂う絶妙なフェイク感と立体的なリズムセクション、その名の通りクリスタル・カラーな抜群のポップセンス、なぜか時々イタロディスコな魅惑溢れるシンセサウンドは、スーパーファミコンへの憧憬もインターネットの未来も通り越し、銀河の果てではまさかのクラシック入りとのこと。CDボーナストラックにはHyperdubの人気女性アーティストIKONIKAとのコラボトラックも収録。
