WRWTFWW Records present the release of Jun Fukamachi’s highly coveted Nicole (86 Spring And Summer Collection – Instrumental Images) album, originally recorded in 1986 for celebrated fashion designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda’s Nicole clothing brand. Never officially available before,Nicole was only distributed as a limited promotional item offered to attendees and participants of the 1986 fashion show for the Nicole brand’s Spring and Summer collection. Fukamachi’s moody magnum opus has become a sort of holy grail for fans of Japanese ambient, jazz, and synth music alike —and rightly so. Meticulously conceived, smooth and subtle, Nicole sounds like it came from an ethereal land where Erik Satie andArt of Noise lived together, a sublimely cinematic listening experience perhaps best described by renowned Japanese music writer Masaharu Yoshioka, aka The Soul Searcher: “If you are driving down the Autobahn at 160 km/h, or even 80 km/h, and Jun’s music starts playing on the car stereo, the windshield will instantly turn into your own personal silver screen.” Made in cooperation of the artist’s estate; Includes new liner notes by Masaharu Yoshioka.
