DJ .Kota Private Mixes: Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk mix… Even though I named this mix “Pillow Talk Mix” it doesn’t matter how you ‘use’ this mix for your private life. I mean, you can use it before the intercourse. This would make you and your partner moody. I hope it does.

Well, this is a sort of private recording, intended as my rehearsal and private listening on iPod and CDs. Ambient, classical, easy-listening, hip hop, electro, country… a border-less compilation. During I was mixing this, I imagined a cup of hot coffee, warmer thick jacket (my favorite), and warm time with my friends and lovers. Songs are all my favorite, they’re all warm, masterpieces.

Now I’m at “GAP / BiFURCATiON”

  • i’m at ‘gap.’ other word i would use at this situation; ‘bifurcation’ also. a starting over.
  • i’m talking about my status, society i live in, colleagues, employer n’ client, partners, how i get along with friends n’ lovers, and how i think of ‘em. 
  • it’s time 2 change, time 2 destroy, time to reconstruct, and ‘time to go’ 

Melting Pot Duo - Time to Go by 2kaiproductions

I decide not using this word. ‘adolescence’

In Japan, we write ‘adolescence’ in Kanji as "青春 Blue Spring" … What’s "blue spring"??? I can never imagine blue landscape in April. (Red or Orange may be better, isn’t it?)  

Many people looks back their past.

  • "That time was great, comparing with these days…"
  • "It was the best moment of my life, comparing with…"

just like these. Of course, I admit that I sometimes look back my o’l days. But that never give me bright future. They just gimme some hints n’ tips, and tiny little pleasures for a couple of minutes. We should have a 'bifurcation' at this time. Let’s think about future, instead of past. Then, we may start thinking more carefully about present.

When I was working on "HAPPINESS" album, it was the time me and many Japanese people were depressed by the huge earthquake and nuclear power plant problems. Then I thought I need to make a "bifurcation" to me. Throw my past, and think more about future. How can I get brighter future? I was looking for an answer during the production period.  One answer I reached was, to build a strong local community and rehabilitation of in-person communications. Never rely on computer and media, or some virtual things. I never say

  • "I wanna revolution by using Facebook n’ Twitter!!"  

Social media and internet should be as alternate choices. Not for primary choice. 

The main topic of my "HAPPINESS" album was to make a "bifurcation" … for the bright future.  We need to start moving, even if you’re alone. You can find your mate, understanding, good partners can’t you? You should express your opinions n’ thoughts at conversation or twitter. (tumblr of course!)  I’ve been discussing this topic at my Japanese website for years, and recently finally published "HAPPINESS" mix, and this website. I need some more mates and partners, because I know I can’t do it alone. 

By "HAPPINESS" I tried to find my understanding, mates. I wanted to express and clarify my thoughts. My song "Breathe in the Air" was about my thoughts on nuclear problems. “Situation” is about darker and serious atmosphere I experienced in Tokyo. And "Bifurcation" gives you a chance to have it.  Of course, music is just music, I mean, the album is just a compilation of good music. But if you have a chance, please listen to it carefully, and read my liner-note included to download pack. I don’t want you all to agree on my thoughts. Never stop thinking of future and happiness more. Do not think about your past too much. As Fleetwood Mac once sung…

  • "Don’t Stop, thinking about tomorrow!!"
