Pyramids release “Japanese Ghosts III” by Yoshimi
Ghost tech is back! For those in the un-know, ghost tech was a short-lived music scene active around the time of hardvapour, specifically from late 2016 through late 2017. Ghost tech was – in the words of Halo Acid (that I’ve echoed countless times) – an attempt to make “dance music for introverts” that took cues from the wonky percussion of UK garage and the off-kilter structures of glitch-pop.. It’s related to hardvapour (and vaporwave) by virtue of many artists (such as HKE and AUT2M) being the “founders” of the scene – as loose as that tag might be.
Pyramids was one of the first labels to release this kind of music (alongside the latter era of the first run of TKX Vault), and it ostensibly closed at the end of 2017. However, the label surprise-dropped the release Japanese Ghosts III by Yoshimi on Halloween, alongside a tease from Dream Catalogue with another release by Yoshimi for that label. This is ghost tech as it was released a year ago, but with some more dark ambient and field recordings-esque tracks. Choice cut is “Bird Ship”. Japanese Ghosts III is available as a pay-what-you-want digital download.
