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.
