Optimo's JD Twitch is releasing a compilation of '80s Japanese music.

The release was pieced together from music that JD Twitch discovered on visits to DJ in Japan, and follows on from Cease & Desist's inaugural record, the 2020 compilation Join The Future - UK Bleep & Bass 1988​-​91. Listen to clips of all of Polyphonic Cosmos' tracks above, and find a full tracklist for the release via Cease & Desist's Bandcamp page.
