japanese telecom's virtual geisha is brilliant. so, basically it comes down to this: 6 degrees of G. there is a reason for his anonimity and i wont say much other than that he is the dominating factor in so much amazing stuff right now. hes not out for fame. just out for electro individuality. and i think he's succeeded! dopplereffekt japanese telecom to now current arpanet. all the work of one genius man! hes got close ties to brenden gillen of ectomorph. they practically re-wrote the books for electro, back in 95, with their debut releases. the drexciya connection comes by way of elecktroids and more currently, transillusion. we can play the guessing game all day. but it seems irrelevant. identities are anonymous for a reason. its good to see the facelessness of electronic music still existing and this music speaking for itself.

Although released anonymously, Japanese Telecom is almost certainly the work of the same person responsible for Dopplereffekt (and Arpanet, for that matter). The composition style, effects, and sounds used are so similar to Dopplereffekt that if it isn't the same person, then Japanese Telecom is a rip-off artist. Although there are rumors, I think the connections to Drexciya are much more tenuous. Drexciya's musical style is really pretty dissimilar to either Japanese Telecom or Dopplereffekt. Anyway, it's hard to tell when the artists are so anonymous. For a long time Drexciya was the work of two men, so it's possible the guy from Dopplereffekt had something to do with it, but there's no real evidence of that, in my opinion.

Debuting on Detroit's Intuit Solar last year, the mystic Japanese Telecom deliver a versatile ten-track release taking us on a technological journey from Dusseldorf to Detroit and Tokyo. Sizzling Kraftwerk style electro elements, futuristic motor-city techno visions and the new-age pop sensibility of Japan's neon culture. From full-fledged electrified techno to sublime electro robotix, this is truly something not to be missed
