俚謡山脈監修リリース第三弾、今度は群馬だ!異常なブースト低音と歪んだ木霊が渦を巻くヘヴーウェイト盆踊り決定版。「木崎音頭」を現地保存会のオリジナル版と当世TRAP版の新旧ダブルでリリース。

我が国で初めてレコードになった民謡であり、日本民謡界最大級のダンス・クラシックとして親しまれる「八木節」、その直接的な源流が群馬県太田市新田木崎町に今も伝わる盆踊り唄「木崎音頭」だ。この曲がとにかくヤバい。その危険なド迫力の前にはどんな民俗音楽系ダンス・チューンも霞んでしまう正にキラー・オブ・キラー!スタジオでEQ調整を間違えたか?と思わず耳を疑ってしまう歪んだ低音と異様な残響に彩られたマッシヴなロウ・ビート。そして色街の夜に生きる飯盛女(注1)のストーリーを赤裸々に綴った口説き形式(注2)の歌詞。これはシカゴで生まれたゲットー・ベースでも、アトランタで生まれたトラップでもない。北関東の生活の中で育まれた日本民謡なのだ。

今回我々は木崎音頭保存会の協力の下、盆踊りの夜の喧騒を閉じ込めた昭和55年と56年の現地録音版をリマスターして収録。そこに新しい試みとしてクラーク内藤による新録の木崎音頭を併せて収録した。ガレージ・パンクをサンプリングしたトラックでラップし、ゴルジェ界隈でも活動するMC/トラックメイカーのクラーク内藤は、ボ・ディドリーとベース・ミュージックを「3分間のR&R」というタームで接続するセンスの持ち主。俚謡山脈×クラーク内藤の共同作業は当世風のトラップ・ビートにスウィートなシンセを添えた現代版の木崎音頭を生み出した。これは俚謡山脈がSoi48のパーティーで行っている「民謡をターンテーブルに乗せて爆音で鳴らす」という行為の延長でもあり「新しい民謡の楽しみ方」の提案だ。単にカッコいい音楽としてお楽しみ頂きたい。

装丁:高木紳介(Soi48)

released August 8, 2018

“Kizaki Ondo” is a folk song from Nitta Kizaki town in Gunma, north of Tokyo. Played annually by local performers at the Bon-Odori traditional summer dance festival, it features unabashed lyrics about prostitution along with a rhythmic drive sure to appeal to fans of contemporary electronic genres as well as aficionados of traditional musics. The first track is a wildly echoing vocal version recorded in 1980, redolent of humid summer nights; the second track, recorded in 1981, is an instrumental version, both by the Kizaki Ondo Preservation Society. The other two tracks are extensions of tradition, with Tokyo-based producer Clark Naito’s 2018 revisions of “Kizaki Ondo” providing trap-inspired interpretations, with a vocal version using the original lyrics, along with a sweet instrumental take. This release, the third edition of the EM Records Japanese folklore series, directed by Riyo Mountains, is available on CD, LP and download.
