PROFILE

イギリス生まれ、現在ブラジルとイギリスに拠点を置くJames Monroは、学生時代にYello, Jean Michelle Jarre、Tangerine Dream、Visage、Human League、Brian Eno、Georgio Moroderなどに影響を受け、80年代より電子実験的バンドのメンバーとして活動を開始。

アシッドハウスなどが生まれ、その後に起きたSummer Of Loveムーブメントも影響し、ゴアをはじめ世界各国フェスティバルなどで遊ぶようになる。そこで収集した音楽を元に楽曲製作をはじめ、95年友人と2人でゴアトランスの歴史を語る上で必ず名前が挙る伝説的なレーベルの一つであるFlying Rhino Recordsを立ち上げる。

2000年、新世紀の訪れと共にFlying Rhinoとしての活動を一度休止、新しいパートナーのGrant Collinsとともに4digitalAudioを開始。ソロとして、また、4digitalAudioのパートナーであるGrantと共に4D名義にて楽曲を製作しつづけている。2012年、Flying Rhinoを一緒に立ち上げたGeorge Barkerと再会、その後もテクノやアンビエントの楽曲をIbogaやTwisted、Proton Music、 Bedrock、Renaissance、Stereo Seven Plusなど数え切れないほどのレーベルからリリースし続けており、平行してテレビやシアター用の音楽制作も手がけるなど、プロデューサーとしての手腕を発揮。

現在、Flying RhinoはFlying Rhino Digitalとして復活し、イギリスではレーベルパーティーを行うなど活動を再開。4D名義としては、テクノ楽曲をリリースし続け活動中であり、 James Monroは今もサイケデリックシーンのキーパーソンとして活躍し続けている。

Matsuri Digital releases its next psychedelic dance music compilation on April 13 with Forever Psychedelic 2.
      
The first Forever Psychedelic compilation was released in 1998 and was evolutionary in its variety of tempos and beats at a time when four-on-the-floor kicks were the norm. Twenty years later, Matsuri revisits this exploratory approach to present an updated and equally varied journey: new tracks and remixes of old favourites, familiar artists and new ones, with today’s production standards but timeless psychedelia inspired by the global dance movement that was expanding in the 90s. The compilation opens with a bouncy, groovy remix of a classic early Matsuri track - Endora’s Joy, first released in 1996 - produced by Oforia and Dede together with label founder Tsuyoshi Suzuki. Tsuyoshi then joins forces with the Japanese New Goa project Jikooha for the acid track The Land of 505. Things then get groovy and deep with MTL’s track Megathrust, whose gnarly 135bpm kick supports an energizing fusion of percussive and synth riffs. The iconic James Monro is next with his track Vantage Point, with a streamlined futuristic groove and hypnotic loops before Kurosaki Tamao continues the mind-bending harmonic vibes with his driving but organic belter Future Om. Dede is next with his mind-altering Planet Drugs, driven by an uplifting kick, melting melodies,and acid lines before the legendary Oforia ends the compilation with ‘What did that make you feel?’, a momentum-filled track with echoing voices and an evocative harmonic flavour. With a wide array of psychedelic musical styles conceptualized with graphic design from the inimitable Japanese artist collective Organix, Matsuri Digital’s Forever Psychedelic 2 compilation is sure to be rocking parties all over the world.
   
Tune in and blast off!

I had a situation like that once flying from Bolivia to brazil , they wouldn’t let me on the plane because I couldn’t show proof i had this injection, so than at the doctor in lapaz we got the injection and payed a extra $$to put the date stamp to 1 week back so that the next day I could fly anyhow..

Oh no hun. But I guess that's better than getting yellow fever :*

Come back to Canada when you have a chance.. No yellow fever here, just regular cold fever :p

My first festival .. And remember buying a yellow Flying Rhino shirt, i wore until it fell apart.

What a great night. I vividly remember Funkus Munkus blaring out in all its glory, and Tin Tin dropping Thugs in Tye Dye towards the end!

Not bad, but definitely not the best festival lineup of all time...

Such a sick line up!

They spelled Hallucinogen wrong 😛

was there..... was fuckn amazing

Wow!

Strago Mutacube metalheadz!!!
