THE SPACE FUNK, JAZZ AND DISCO SOUND OF GENIUS JAPANESE PRODUCER YUJI OHNO. A SELECTION - THE FIRST OUTSIDE OF JAPAN - MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH NIPPON COLUMBIA AND YUJI OHNO HIMSELF. REMASTERED AUDIO AND LINER NOTES BY NICK LUSCOMBE IN CONVERSATION WITH OHNO

Wewantsounds is delighted to announce the release of "Touch," a selection of tracks produced by Yuji Ohno, one of the most revered producers and arrangers on the Nippon music scene. His blend of Jazz, Space Funk and Disco have long been highly sought-after by DJs around the world and we've been given unique access to the Nippon Columbia vaults and to Mr. Ohno himself to come with a versatile selection from his 70s body of work, all bearing his uniquely recognisable sound. The set includes works with singers Nanako Sato, Hatsumi Shibata and Ken Tanaka alongside tracks from his cult anime soundtracks for "Lupin III" and "Captain Future." Approved by Yuji Ohno himself, "Touch" was remastered in Tokyo by Nippon Columbia and features liner notes by Nick Luscombe in conversation with the maestro and artwork by Optigram's Manuel Sepulveda.
