Sure, he’s done the requisite “new producer” activities, offering up a bounty of free tunes over the past few months to help build his name while dropping records for labels such as Granholme, Well Rounded Individuals, GETME!, and Made to Play. He’s even started his own imprint, LYWat Records, on which he’s also been releasing music. As if that hyperactive pace wasn’t hectic enough, when invited to put together an XLR8R podcast, Graphics elected to eschew the traditional DJ mix in favor of a playlist consisting of nothing but his own productions, all of which are currently unreleased.

    Surf had developed into a full fledged mania in mid-’60s Japan, resulting in hundreds of Japanese combos during the era now dubbed ‘Eleki Buumu’. Here we have a TV footage from ‘94, three decades after the boom, which kicks off with the iconic Japanese surf figure Yūzō Kayama introducing the band and playing one of his songs. The Ventures as a four piece combo, play three songs, Diamond Head, Pipeline and Black Sand Beach, which is one of Kayama’s biggest hits.
