Published Oct 02, 201520rpm is the 16th full-length release from Japanese singer, songwriter, producer, label owner and all around prodigy Coppé. In case you missed it there — that's 16. Sixteen full-length albums.
After launching Mango + Sweetrice Records in 1995, the double-album release of 20rpm is a 20-year celebration honouring both Coppé's musical achievements and the success of her label. 20rpm is almost impossible to describe — it's an abstract and eclectic compilation, rife with diversity and completely unexpected.
Except it's not a compilation. It's a single artist spanning 20-plus years in music, showcasing a massive range of collaborations with artists signed to her label and not. 20rpm blows through downtempo, ambient, a bit of house, a touch of classical, a pinch of jazz and then picks up the grime and mellows in the static. Each track also blends seamlessly with the next, despite the huge range here, creating an exceptionally cohesive, absolutely eclectic album. (Mango Sweetrice)
