    Mental Groove Records is thrilled to announce the official vinyl release of the sought-after ambient house / minimal techno e.p. by japanese producer Asian Psilocybe Foundation (APF). Originally pressed on a limited run of 25 handcrafted white label and available only at Disk Union Tokyo where all copies sold out within a minute.
    Now it’s available to the widest audience.

    APF had raised much attention from the Detroit techno scene since he started producing music. He got remixed by Jon Dixon of Underground Resistance’s Timeline on his 1st e.p. “Cosmic Dance” that was released on New Heroes Records, the label of legendary producer Orlando Voorn (Fix, Playboy).

    APF is an eccentric Japanese musician who on this e.p. achieve to translates into sounds the sensations he experienced during his stays in the Doshi forest (Chūbu region of Japan). With finesse and elegance his music balances between the real and the surreal, using layers of unprocessed field recordings materials and traditional instruments, creating meditative soundscapes at the emergence of ambient and trance over minimal beats for an unique final rendered. Environmental grooves anyone?

    APF is also part of the insane Optimist monday parties at the (Rey Audio equipped) club AIR in Tokyo where he performs live alongside his dj team Tobi & Jonson.

    Water Vein starts with a ritual sequences followed by two carefully crafted club tracks for both the feet and the brain, shaping abstract space throughout the listening experience with an extended version by veteran Dj Yogurt to boost. Dj Yogurt got on the wheels of steels while working at Cisco Records, one of the top record shop in Japan and is a regular figure in the city nightlife. He also headlined several time the famous Fuji Rock Festival.

    Water Vein has been mastered by Frederic Stader for Music Matters in Berlin.

    “I want you to feel the forest, its soil, water and sun rays through out the tress!”
