Ryuichi Sakamoto – B-2 Unit

B-2 Unit is the second solo album from pioneering Japanese composer and multi-instrumentalist, Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Released in 1980, the record sits somewhere between synth pop and industrial breakbeat, with brooding minimalist compositions like The End Of Europe, juxtaposed with mechanical lullabies like Thatness and Thereness; the album demonstrates a feeling of freedom and experimentation which heavily influenced the sound of YMO’s 1981 Technodelic LP.

Not to be missed.
