Welcome back to another #SakuraUnderground. DJ Silent and DJ Sakura666 coming to you from the VFR studios, recorded on 1/21/2023. Please look forward to the sounds that were played that day.
We first start the show with a dedication to members of the band Yellow Magic Orchestra. An underrated japanese band from the 80s-90s, a very influential and imaginative group who had used electronic equipment in ways that was not the social norm for the times. Sadly singer and drummer Yukihiro Takahashi past last week 1/14/2023. RIP
and Ryuichi Sakamoto keys and vocals, celebrated his birthday 1/17 he turned 71!

Tighten UP (Japanese Gentlemen Stand Up Please)
DJ Silent had selected 3 songs from Joy Division Unknown Pleasures album. He loves it. We discuss the bass line from New Dawn Fades.

She’s Lost Control
DJ Silent has asked DJ Sakura666 for her opinion of the saddest Depeche Mode song she knew of. She came up with One Caress from the album Songs of Faith and Devotion which came out in 1993.
