Sector V

Marcus D

Tokyo Cyberpunk Meets Futuristic Beats

Entering 2020, which is for all intents and purposes, the "future"...I was inspired to create something that represents what I see everyday in the underbelly of metropolitan Tokyo. Whether through films or Japanese animation like Bladerunner, Tron, Akira, or even Ghost in the Shell, things that are commonplace in Tokyo have long-shaped the West's subconscious image of what the "future" looks like.

The district of Adachi ward, (where I live now), plays host to some of Tokyo's most characteristic sub-cultures including JDM enthusiasts, bosozoku (Japanese biker gangs) and is also a long-reputed yakuza hub. This environment and my affinity for cyberpunk birthed Sector V. Sector V is a futuristically nostalgic soundtrack of an exile who embodies all of the above, returning to his home after the apocalypse. Accompanied only by his car, a 4-track VDR (vinyl-disc), and his last pack of cigarettes, our hero returns to (what's left of) Sector V.

Sector V contains 4 brand new instrumentals on beautiful sky-blue paint splattered neon purple 7" (45rpm) vinyl. Only 100 copies will be pressed, and it will only be pressed if the goal is met. Thank you to my fans and supporters for always trusting in the vision and helping me create the art I want to present to the world.
