Oorutaichi takes the word ‘fun’ into hyperdrive. This Japanese producer shakes the rules of techno, electro pop and sampling like a can of soda and lets things fly with contagious enthusiasm and heart. Go ahead and blast tracks like ‘Beshaby’ and ‘Yori Yoyo’ without ricocheting across the room like a hamster on uppers. It ain’t happening. Since his debut album back in 2003, Oorutaichi has scored animated shorts, performed extensively with his band Urichipangoon, and even sampled the legendary Moondog on his track ‘Hamihadarigeri’.
