I was completely unaware of Asa before coming across this Japanese musician's two retrospective CD, and still can not say much about him. He still still active, but gathers quite a lot of material from the last two years of the 20th century on this disc. Downtempo-ish in a way that reminds a bit of the dusty and slow releases on Spectre's Wordsound, but instrumental, a lot jazzier and somewhat funkier, the tracks presented here are quite minimal but very pleasant in their mixture of electronic hip-hop, jazz arrangement and semi-loungy downbeat. A bit mysterious (at least if you're, like me, not very familiar with this side of the Japanese scene), but recommended.
