This show was recorded via Zoom on the 2nd January 2021 with my good friend Tomo from Tokyo, Japan.
It focuses on the life and music of Japanese musician and artist Makoto Kubota, whose career has spanned five decades and covers a wide range of different genres including folk, rock, traditional Okinawan music, exotica, ambient and lo-fi.

"What a challenge to try to define my musical 'DNA' through a two hour selection of tracks! Still, it is a great honour to have been asked, and I have found it to be a very satisfying experience.

I was very honoured to be asked to select three Sakamoto tracks for this show and also talk a little bit about them. It was broadcast in 17th January 2019 to celebrate Ryuichi's 67th birthday.

This show was recorded on the 8th April 2018 with my good friend Tomo in Gifu, Japan.

This show was recorded on the 2nd May 2017 with my good friend Tomo, and completes my current YMO radio series, focusing on one of my heroes, Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Look out for Tomo's forthcoming YMO article in 'The Wire' magazine - more details to follow!
