A sonic summoning rune to transport you to distant dancefloors.
Sofheso, aka Iioka Tohru, is releasing his first full-length album, titled A RECORD (記録), via First Terrace Records this September.
Across the album’s nine tracks, the elusive Japanese producer delivers a pummelling combination of harsh noise, skittering electronics, cavernous bass, and erratic vocal samples.
Alongside the announcement, Sofheso has released a hypnotic new video directed by Kan Togashi for lead single ‘ONJJ’. A special edition of the LP will come with a tape-dubbed recording of Sofheso’s performance at Tokyo’s Forest Limit from earlier this year, along with a limited-run zine of sketches by Togashi.
A RECORD (記録) follows Sofheso’s retrospective ARCHIVE compilation, released through First Terrace Records in 2018.
