 Greeen Linez — Izu King Street (August 14th, 2014)

JapanHong Kong Greeen Linez — Izu King Street 
•   Greeen Linez is a collaboration between Chris Greenberg (from the British electronic pop band Hong Kong In the 60s) and UK-born/Tokyo-based DJ/producer A Taut Line (aka Matt Lyne, co-founder of the Diskotopia label). The project combines the ‘90s dance music and R&B that soundtracked Chris and Matt’s childhoods with the ‘70s/’80s jazz-funk and synthesizer soundtracks that they have obsessed over in the years since. All of this is filtered through the cocktail of retro pop, fusion and supermarket muzak that Matt has been exposed to during his time in Japan. Following last year’s self-titled EP on Diskotopia, as well as remixes for Mau’lin (also on Diskotopia), Darkhouse Family (on Earnest Endeavours) and BD1982 (on B.YRSLF Division), their debut album Things That Fade is released summer 2012 on Diskotopia.

GREEEN LINEZ TAKE INSPIRATION FROM PAUL HARDCASTLE AND LARRY HEARD FOR SECOND ALBUM, IZU KING STREET
•   Retro-loving duo’s second album sees them delve into “jazz-funk and 90s dance inspired modern musak.”
•   Greeen Linez, the continent-crossing duo of A Taut Line (based in Tokyo) and Chris Greenberg from Honk Kong In The 60s (based in the UK), have announced a summer release for their second album, Izu King Street.
•   Released once more via A Taut Line’s Diskotopia label, Izu King Street sees the pair take their retro penchant a little forward in time following the focus on californian boogie, dance pop and BGM funk of their debut, Things That Fade.
•   or this new album the pair have focused their remit on “more melody, more complexity, more ambition and less sampling.” Inspiration wise the likes of Paul Hardcastle and Larry Heard were key figures for “work [that] straddles the boundaries between dance music, new-age/ambient and jazz — and most importantly, as was the aim for this album, creates a self-contained world in which the listener can lose themselves.”
•   Sonically the pair admit that this all translates into “a journey through a fantasy realm of memories and dreams: from the neon-lit city streets and gleaming corporate spaces of the opening tracks, through the wistful dreamscapes at the album’s heart and on to the tropical heat-haze of the closing numbers.”
•   The album features collaboration with saxophonist Yoshihiro Nakagawa, from idol group Especia, and guitarist Awa, with whom the pair already collaborated. (http://www.factmag.com/)                                    © Disktopia label owners BD1982 (left) and A Taut Line (right)

•   Matt has been living in Japan for over 6 years, and his music is infused with a sense of dislocation and slight melancholy familiar to anyone who has been away from their native country for a long time. However, he has also kept up to date with developments in international dance music through running his Diskotopia club nights — and DJing alongside people like James Murphy, M.I.A, Hudson Mohawke, Mary Anne Hobbs, Lone, Untold, Optimo, Ivan Smagghe, Goth-Trad and many more– and this has also fed into his production.
•   Matt’s influences stretch from cutting-edge bass music to classic house and disco, taking in the ‘80s film soundtracks he grew up with, and the mesmeric tuned percussion he picked up from his classical training, studying composers such as Steve Reich, on top of his long-term love for Chicago post-rock artists such as Tortoise.
