There's a couple Antagonist tracks in that mix, also been seeing the name 'Roho' as a listed artist on Samurai mixes, I guess we'll have to wait. Samurai got a healthy roster even with the UVB guys having left the bird's nest.

Shiken's got a butt-load of tracks doing the rounds in the last 12 months, speaking of which...

For those with eagle eyes, assume what this cryptic wording implies....

"As the first Samurai Music artist LP of 2019, Gravity"

we should get another LP off Samurai before the year is out??
Unsure if this is confirmed as the other LP that Samurai are putting out this year or next, but Mako is working on an long player for the label, and if Let The Truth Be Heard / Forbenji are anything to go by, then we're in for a right treat!!! o_O

Looks like Samurai are starting a new series of releases on the main label, called Samurai Hannya:

That teaser video didn't grab me at all, but the 3 plate series are all stellar releases! Available individually or as a bundle from Void from 17th July

The new Samurai Music series of 12"s - Samurai Hannya - are based on the mythical masks of a Noh drama (a form of traditional Japanese theatre). Hannya masks capture the stages of transformation of a female character as she undergoes a metamorphosis into a demon / ogre. This transformation is caused by deep sadness and anger, fuelled by intense jealousy. The mask embodies the resentment and fierce obsession of this character. Its horrible look gives us an impression that it is not just a grotesque monster, but that it also expresses the deep sadness of human beings. A cautionary tale of the power of negative emotions portrayed aptly in this infamous play. Hannya masks are also very popular with tattooists around the world along with many other characters and symbols from the fascinating Japanese mythology.

The 12”s for the Samurai Hannya series are named after these 3 stages / masks and feature all new tracks from the Samurai family of artists created specifically for this project. The series introduces a new Russian artist Roho, plus the first two collaborations from label head Presha (with Homemade Weapons & Ancestral Voices) alongside label regulars Homemade Weapons, The Untouchables, Torn, Artilect, Last Life, Antagonist, and for the first time on Samurai, Weaponry artists Torana.
