Just because: Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) – Multiples (Altern8 remix)

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) are often unfairly overlooked in the West because of people like Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder and Devo running a similar vein of future electronic pop music. In the early 1990s they had a brief day in the sun as electronic artists of the time remixed their work.

One that worked surprisingly well was Altern8’s take on the YMO works surprisingly well and was teamed up with SIGGraph-esque computer visuals in the video chopped with real YMO footage making an artistic video that New Order would have been proud of. The video is on YouTube so may not be able to viewed everywhere.
