Software to re-release Suicideyear's debut mixtape Japan

On March 10, Software will release a reworked version of Suicideyear’s 2013 debut mixtape Japan on vinyl and digital formats. The tape, originally released as a limited-run cassette on Helsinki label Anti-Party Music, preceded Suicideyear’s excellent Remembrance EP, an experience TMT reviewer Gage Taylor called “pointillist vapors almost entirely divorced from any existing scene.” In addition to the vinyl and digital releases, Japan will be issued on CD alongside Remembrance, together titled DREAM 727. Yes, the boy is hot!

It’s totally understandable that the thirst for physical copies of the mixtape is heavy: he’s wrapping up a tour through Western Europe and coming hard with a string of productions for underground kings like Rome Fortune, Antwon, Yung Lean, Bones, and Prada Mane. And who knows, maybe Software saw the itch on Discogs, where Japan holds a 16-to-71 have-to-want ratio, and wanted to reach out to the parched. Either way, the drought is almost over, y’all.

Did you have, lose, and recoup your cottonmouth? Then find Suicideyear at Marfa Myths or catch him in his hometown at Buku Music Festival, and PLEASE also keep your ear to the street for Suicideyear at SXSW.
