Translucent Green 12" Vinyl, run of 500
Mirage is the fourth album from London-based Japanese producer Anchorsong aka Masaaki Yoshida. The highly-feted MPC wizard presents a record that evokes hazy soundscapes constructed with wind instrumentals, choirs, and global sonic particles. Building on Anchorsong’s long-standing tradition of “borderless music”, ‘Mirage’ fuses intricate rhythms with minimal yet immersive lush interplays of sound to create an auditory odyssey.
It marks a departure from Anchorsong’s previous two albums- Ceremonial and Cohesion - specific geographical references. Instead, the album which was half-written during lockdown and when nobody could travel, shows Masaaki internalise his global influences and worldview to conjure a “vague landscape that only exists in my mind”.
