The Drop Series is a collection of unreleased tracks that I will post, one by one, in my new soundcloud page.
I am curious to experiment this different approach so far from my usual process for making an album.
At the end of my last recording “Cycles” (scheduled for 2020) I realized that it will be difficult to make something better than this album. I also felt an inner desire to change my perception about music.
Nowadays it is very easy to record an album, but are they always necessary? About this question I answered that it’s probably better to take a breath, reboot myself, experiment with music like a kid and then, only when it will be the right moment, I’ll be ready to record a new full-length. In the meantime I hope you enjoy these little drops of recordings made with love…

Some artists need time and a lot of work before finding a musical path, the perfect conjunction between soul and maturity is often hard to reach. I think ojeRum was born with this special feature and this was highly perceptible listening to his debut album. All of the music we know by him is just a natural consequence of this seed of art. “There is a Flaw in my Iris” will be available in vinyl format and in a new digital mastering.

I’m pleased to close the year with an artist that I personally contacted for publishing with KrysaliSound after having listened to his album “Wet Petals” released by Naviar Records.
Hirotaka Shirotsubaki is a Kobe-based musician that uses sampled guitars to create dreamy landscapes and emotional textures moving the listener in a quiet and safe inner dwelling. I am proud to present his new album “Last Goodbye” available in KrysaliSound’s catalogue starting from December 9. About the album Hirotaka says:
“In Japan, the era called “Heisei” will end this year. My life was with this “Heisei” era. In order to live a new era with one break at the end of this era while I am alive, I have decided the title of this album to be “last goodbye” with a determination of parting. The 6 tracks that make up this album have my memory fragments scattered around.”
- Performed and recorded in Kobe between April and October 2018
- Mastering by Francis M. Gri in 2018
- Available in digital format and in KS Digifile from December 9, 2018
