Ill on a journey – a mix for Japan
Gerard Roberts, alias Kidkanevil, has also decided to join the ranks of those wanting to draw our attention and help the situation in Japan. The Briton has cooked up a mix with a distinct Japanese flavour: music lover Kidkanevil has collected tracks by Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Daisuke Tanabe, Makoto Moroi, DJ Krush, Lullatone, Riow Arai & Tujiko Noriko and Toru Takemitsu on a panoramic mixtape with a title taken from a haiku by Japanese poet Matsuo Bash?. Roberts offers “ill on a journey / my dreams roam round / over withered field” as a free download, on the condition that those who download it donate to the Red Cross fund.
