We’ve been religiously listening to Tomoyuki Fujii’s show Mori to Kiroku no Ongaku on Lyl Radio for the past two years, along with his mixes with various outlets, such as Sanpo Disco, Hamon Radio, Tonal Unity, Lullabies for Insomniacs, Radio Relativa, and Dug Up the Bongo. And we love his ambient-centric blog, Mori to Kiroku no Ongaku, which recently went on hiatus after 12 years. Even though he’s taking a break from music blogging, he’s still active in collecting music and making mixes.
Fujii’s latest mix for 100.000 was inspired by his memories of the 80s/90s hustle and bustle of Japan’s economy. In present day, the same shopping areas feel a bit deserted and much less lively.

Tomoyuki Fujii would like to thank all of the musical friends he has met through the blog. This mix is inspired by my old memories and recent listening.
