Listen back to Toshiya Tsunoda’s European Prog-Rock mix for Newtype Rhythms

Newtype Rhythms comes to you this week with a focus on a far-off place and sound – European Prog Rock from the ’70s – what’s even more amusing about it is the source of the show’s special guest mix, Japanese field-recording master Toshiya Tsunoda.

The Yokohama-based artist has been at it again lately, thanks to a retrospective re-release from Lorenzo Senni’s Presto!? Records imprint “Extract from Field Recording Archive I-IV“, which cobbles together about 20 years worth of material. To celebrate that, Newtype Rhythms had him over for a guest mix, but with a twist: Tsunoda was told to go any direction he wanted in the mix, so he did what one naturally does, dig through his record collection and play a 70+ minute set of European prog-rock.

Sheepshead rocks the first 48 minutes with some ambient cuts and afterwards, Tsunoda chugs along with some timeless Euro-brilliance.
