about

Aru-2 is a beatmaker from Tokyo, Japan. Real name Akira Noto, Aru is an underground fixture in the beat tape scene worldwide, earning acclaim with a slew of DIY and collaborative releases over the last few years. Now he makes his long-awaited label debut with Ayakashi Instruments (アヤカシ インストゥルメンツ) – an instrumental album inspired by Japanese folklore, that seamlessly blends a myriad of different sounds, influences and reference points all into one cohesive experience.

"They say Ayakashi is a Japanese ghost spirit, but to me, I think of it as encountering mystery. I've spent a lifetime with Ayakashi, and this album is where it brought me. It was just one phase in my past, and now I'm walking toward my future." – Aru-2
