    This is absolutely beautiful....

    Andy Cato's new album...

    About the release: The Magic Dragon is the debut long player from
    Japanese Recording artist Maiku Takahashi which was produced, recorded,
    arranged, and engineered by Andy Cato of Groove Armada fame. Andy first
    met Maiku while on a tour of the Far East back in 1998. Bonded together
    by their shared love of vintage Adidas trainers and obscure Northern
    soul 7"s, the pair became fast friends and Andy later signed on to
    produce Maiku's debut LP while on a break from touring and recording
    with Groove Armada. The result of their collaboration is this
    captivating collection of timeless subterranean trip hop soundscapes.
    Masterfully fusing raw hip hop breaks and bottom heavy base lines with
    lush synthesizer melodies, blissful vocal harmonics and gentle guitar
    chords, the duo deliver a sophisticated and seductive program of exotic
    far east inspired down tempo electronica that harks back to Groove
    Armada's Balearic chill out classic "At the River" and will appeal to
    fans of Nightmares on Wax, The Dining Rooms, DJ Krush and Toshinori
