I really like the Japanese Poppy Dancey type stuff like:

 

Capsule (Capsule - Hello: http://songfountain.com/discussion/26)

Perfume

Meg (Meg - Telephone: http://songfountain.com/discussion/250)

Aira Mitsuki

 

Anybody a fan of bossa nova? Any bossa nova electronic fusion type artists?

 

I love this kinda stuff, Capsule are awesome! I also really like some Shibuya Kei stuff like Cornelius, and the occasional Pizzacato Five song. And of course the first two Katamari Damacy soundtracks.

 

Never heard of Perfume or Aira Mitsuki... only have a coupla Meg songs.

 

I really like this, although it might be a little too poppy for your liking... the melody at the end never fails to make me melt (excuse the lame AMV):

And of course there's Susumu Hirasawa:

Also, this isn't japanese, but I just bought an album by an australian dance group called Bag Raiders and it reminds me of stuff like Capsule:

I just checked out the Katamari Damacy it's awesome! Also, I don't mind Pizzcato Five, it's super happy music lol. And Bag Raiders is awesome too.

Yeah I meant to mention Nobukazu Takemura, although I haven't heard much from him... cool stuff though! I read he did sound design for one of those sort of toy robot dog things that were really popular a few years ago.

I'm OK w/ the Japanese as long as they do British style electronics.

 

on a side, that Kiyoshi Izumi EP on Rephlex smelled of ass.

That EP is amazing, fuck you.

I digged this song too and I also really liked the video and song here Cornelius - Mic Check: http://songfountain.com/discussion/288

 

I actually bought Fantasma several months ago, listened to it once and thought "...this isn't as good as Point" and never listened to it again...

 

 

 

 

....UNTIL LAST WEEK... and now I think it's GENIUS! It's one of those albums where every track fits together so perfectly... like they all bounce off each other and compliment each other so well!

Yeah, I really liked Point, but I think I like fantasima more. I digged clash, mic check, the micro disneycal world tour (these are ones I remember off the top of my head). Yeah I also really digged the transitions. Btw, have you checked out his remixes? They are sick! I posted one up here http://songfountain.com/discussion/290 (one of many good ones).
