Topic: Japanese synth-pop / new wave : Can you recommend some ?

I recently fell in love with this record by Y.M.O :

The first side is absolutely delightful.

So I was wondering if you robots can recommende some japanese synth pop and new wave stuff !
Thanks in advance.

I like the Plastics:

and Logic System (Hideki Matsutake, also associated with YMO):

Re: Japanese synth-pop / new wave : Can you recommend some ?

Be sure you also check Ryuichi  Sakamoto solo in case you haven't done that yet. He has some great records, Riot In lagos is great as well as more songs on the B-2 Unit album, and Lexington Queen and Warhead on the 12". Besides this he has more listenable albums.

I also like some stuff of Sandii & The Sunsetz. They aso have a YMO link, Hosono and Takahashi produced some stuff. My favourite song is Walk Away but I can't find thta one on Yoiutube or elsewhere quickly.

The above mentioned Logic System is great indeed.

I'll think of some (les obvious ones) more.

Re: Japanese synth-pop / new wave : Can you recommend some ?

these 2 are more experimental Japanese bands of the 80s, but (i think) still enjoyable:

Neo Museum

EP-4 (Unit 4)

Re: Japanese synth-pop / new wave : Can you recommend some ?

This mix has not left my ipod in ages, so much great stuff http://yingyangs.blogspot.com/2011/01/y … 1f5a671d63

Would highly recommend the yukihiro takahashi - neuromantic lp for straight up synth pop business, loads of awesome songs on it, think most of it is on youtube actually.

Well I think I prefered BGM until I found Naughty Boys. But this album is very close to J pop I think, so I'm also looking for very electronic 80's J pop if such a thing exist.

I'm addicted to this tracks :


And thanks a lot for all your responses ! Yukihiro Takahashi and Hideki Matsutake seems to be great.

(edit : just  forget to mention that I 'm also a big of the Beatniks - Extentiaslim LP and I didn't know Takahashi from the Beatniks and YMO had a solo career)

@somatica
This ymo-track hasn't lost any of it's strength since I heard at the age of 12. F*cking brilliant!
