Canned YumYum Hisaishi's music in a new dress. Go Yama continues to deliver great flips and remixes. Kiki's Delivery Bump Track is what made me consider buying this album, the Nekobasu intermission is what ultimately made me buy it. Favorite track: Kiki's Delivery Bump Track.

Andrew Hsieh GO YAMA's ish sends me spiraling into the intense depravity that is suddenly not knowing how life could possibly get any better than this. Everything after this point in my life is going to smack of anticlimax. Favorite track: Laputa Star Bits (extended).

We have always admired the music of Boston-based Go Yama, so when he hit us up to see if we were keen to release his special tribute to the great Hayao Miyazaki, we simply couldn't refuse. For those who might not be familiar, Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese film director, animator, manga artist, illustrator, producer, and screenwriter. Miyazaki has attained international acclaim as a maker of anime feature films and, along with Isao Takahata, co-founded Studio Ghibli, a film and animation studio. The success of Miyazaki's films has invited comparisons with American animator Walt Disney, British animator Nick Park, and American director Steven Spielberg.
So being huge fans of his works, we took an immediate interest in Go Yama's proposition, and after listening at length to his tribute, we are really glad to be putting this out as an official DTW release. With this tribute, Go Yama clearly displays his abilities to interpret Miyazaki's works in a variety of ways - From heavy bass takes, silky boom-bap to dreamy 4/4 cuts, he keeps us constantly on our toes and we are pretty sure that the master would have been very proud if he had a chance to listen to it.

The Ep will be released officially via our Bandcamp page on the 28th of Feb, but we are taking pre-orders now, with the Single 'Miniature Ponyo Souls' to be given as a Free Download.
