Had to chime in on this one as well!
I was not familiar with the work of Kenji Siratori prior to his work with Exuviae, but I did do my research on him prior to releasing The Drug Embryo on Dark Winter. It was obvious he was very prolific to the point of insanity but I kind of found it interesting that so many labels decided to release his works. While many may not agree with his methods and approach, he seems to be very up front and direct, and it's not like he's pretending to be something/someone he's not (I love the post about him being a virus!). His text works were very intriguing to me both from the stream of consciousness standpoint and from the layout and design side. When Brooks matched this up with his soundscapes, treatments and imagery, I was very impressed with the package as a whole and very proud to release it as my 50th release on Dark Winter. For me, it's not always about how many proverbial notches an artist has on their bedpost, but rather how the music/project sounds. While I can't speak to the other Kenji related works out there (and there is MANY) I feel that the Exuviae/Kenji release is a most enjoyable listening experience and with that I would be interested in hearing more of his material based on this initial excursion...
