Back after a summer break with a disco / housey one from Japan, that I heard on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space radio show last week.

Kento Sasaki from Tokyo has been releasing music as one half of Force Of Nature for almost a decade now, most recently on local label Mule Musiq.

His new solo project is called The Backwoods, and last month, his debut effort, the “Sunstream / Midnight Run” single was released on another Tokyo label, Ene Records.

His self-titled full-length album is being released today on CD in Japan only. (The cheapest place I’ve found to get it on import is CDJapan. It comes to 2,700 yen, or about €25.) A download-only release will follow in Europe in August. (Samples are up on the label’s soundcloud page now)
