We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want have played a big part in the resurgence of interest in Japanese composer Midori Takada. In 2017 the label reissued her seminal 1983 work Through The Looking Glass. This re-release paved the way for 2018’s Lafawndah collaboration Le Renard Bleu, Takada’s first batch of new recordings in almost two decades. With Takada very much back on the scene, WRWTFWW have combed her archives once more and got hold of a 1981 album she made with her MKWAJU Ensemble. MKWAJU - so named after the Swahili word for tamarind, a tree native to central Africa that is often used to make tuned percussion instruments - was the space in which Takada first began to bring together her interests in minimalist composition, ambient music and sub-Saharan African traditions. As such, the group’s first record Ki-Motion marks an important moment in Takada’s musical evolution.
