FH048 Portopia ’81 – Stardust Memory

RIYL: library music, swinging organ, the warm smell of tubes and cigarette smoke

The project Portopia ’81 is named after an expo in Kobe from that year but its heart is more bound to 1961. Mizuhiro’s vision of a space-bound humanity reaching the stars via silver needles and fired though rainbow washes of nebulae is translated though the analog pops of organ drum machines and wedded to the calming voices of vintage synthesizers – a perfect soundtrack to a future that wasn’t.

Portopia ’81 is Mizuhiro of Japan, also owner of tape label Ginjoha
