Happy to announce another very special Hosoi performance, this time by no other than the professional percussionist and producer Michal Turtle. With currently 2 albums and 1 EP reissue on the much praised label Music From Memory
Michal Turtle's 1983 album "Music From The Living Room" - totally ignored at the time of release, is now regarded as a deeply forward thinking opus, defying categorisation. Recorded on a four-track portastudio in the living room of his family home in south London, elements of electro, house, ambient, minimal, among others, still sounds relevant and contemporary today.
Recently rediscovered by the Amsterdam label: "Music From Memory", a 12 inch in 2015, and a double album in 2016 were released, featuring tracks from the original album, plus other tracks recorded around the same time. The album was an instant success scoring a 7.9 out of 10 mark on pitch fork’s rating system. Fact magazine placed the album “Phantoms of Dreamland” on the first place in their “The Months best reissues” category.
Michal is a classically trained percussionist and pianist, now based in Basel, Switzerland.
