Tolerance – Divin

What our staff has to say: “Since the death of Yuzuru Agi, a lot of reissues of releases on his Vanity Records label have been popping up on labels like Vinyl On Demand, Minimal Wave, We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want, and most recently Mesh-Key. Mesh-Key did the much-needed Aunt Sally reissue last year, and now this year have followed that up with reissues of both Tolerance LP’s as well as Morio Agata’s ‘Norimono Zukan’. The best of the bunch is probably Tolerance’s ‘Divin’, which sees Junko Tange in a mode somewhere between minimal synth (think very minimal) and proto techno (deep on the dubbed out experimental end.) The release has been expanded to a 45rpm 2xLP. Check it out!” – Jon

“Junko Tange’s second and final album is a minimalistic, phantasmagoric masterpiece of distant, dreamlike voices woven through pulsating, dubbed-out drum machines, synths and static, originally issued by Osaka’s Vanity Records in 1981. Did this unassuming dental student (who vanished from the music world following this release) inadvertently invent dub techno? You be the judge. Label head Yuzuru Agi said this was his favorite Vanity release, and it’s not hard to see why. Remastered by Stephan Mathieu from brand new transfers of the miraculously well preserved original analog tapes, this fully authorized 2LP (@45rpm) is the definitive edition of this landmark electronic work. Packaged in a deluxe, gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket.”
