Nicole (86 Spring And Summer Collection - Instrumental Images) (2017 reissue)



Released: 27th Oct 2017



Released: 27th Oct 2017


this moody magnum opus has become a sort of Holy Grail for fans of Japanese ambient, jazz, and synth music alike, and rightly so.

originally recorded in 1986 for fashion designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda’s Nicole clothing brand, this is the first time ever that it’s been released officially. Meticulously conceived, smooth and subtle, ‘Nicole’ sounds like it came from an ethereal land where Erik Satie and Art of Noise lived together; a sublimely cinematic listening experience perhaps best described by renowned Japanese music writer Masaharu Yoshioka aka The Soul Searcher: “If you are driving down the Autobahn at 160 km/h, or even 80 km/h, and Jun’s music starts playing on the car stereo, the windshield will instantly turn into your own personal silver screen”.
