Minoru 'Hoodoo' Fushimi - In Praise of Mitochondria
Minoru 'Hoodoo' Fuhimi (the Hoodo comes from a favorite Junior Wells album of his) began working with samplers and synths in 1979 and released 4 albums of his idiosyncratic music between 1985-1992. After a record digger came upon one of his albums, he uploaded the track to YouTube to sell the record on Discogs, and the music caught the left ear of Left Ear Records in Australia.
And so at long last, a repress of Japanese electro eccentric Minoru 'Hoodoo' Fushimi's In Praise Of Mitochondria, a compilation of tracks released between 1985 and 1992. Collected herein are songs that manage to connect the traditional music and instruments of his country to the cosmic vibrance of George Clinton, the decadence of Egyptian Lover, and the heaviness of On-U Sound.
12 tracks have been selected from Fushimi's output and presented in this remastered 2xLP reissue.
