Text from Rhythm Passport site:

Giacomo Lee is a music writer and author from the UK, with a keen interest in music new and old from East Asia – and the more electronic, the better!

He’s currently at work on a new novel, with his debut Funereal being a surreal look at South Korea’s so-called ‘fake funeral’ treatments, along with an exploration into the shadowy side to Asia’s pop music industry.

Atlantic Lipsss starts off with one of the most slept on indie releases from last year by South Korea’s 75a. It then explores the best synth-pop, future funk, dream music and art rock from Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.

There’s footwork from Foodman, plunderphonic fun from In the Blue Shirt, plus more great Korean music from electronica duo Twomyung. There’s also some dance and downtempo. Hell, there’s even a bit of rap from a fresh little mash-up featuring Japan’s Koutei Camera Girl on the mic.

This mix will truly take you places….
