Since I moved to Tokyo, I’ve been releasing records and organising tours for musicians from around the world, first as Teto Records, then finally as Eskers.

In 2016 it was my pleasure to collaborate with Melbourne-based artist Sui Zhen and acclaimed New York design duo Mogollon to release a limited edition EP with a special launch event in Aoyama, Tokyo:

Each audio cassette EP was locally manufactured and dubbed in downtown Tokyo. Each tape came with a unique download coupon, giving those who aren't ready to return to an analog lifestyle the opportunity to listen to the music on their digital listening device of choice. Art design & direction by Mogollon.

 Over 250 people came to see Sui Zhen perform, alongside British musicians Kid Kanevil and Submerse.  Since this time Sui Zhen went on to get signed by Tokyo’s premier independent label,  P-Vine .   Listen to the Body Reset EP here .
