Sampling/borrowing lives strong in the strangest of places. In 2014, for his album Salad Days, Mac DeMarco used the shimmering “jizz-jazz” electronica of Shigeo Siketo, a Japanese musician who mastered the Electone. In 1975, Siketo released his Special Sound Series Vol. 2 collection on Columbia Records. The second track on the flip-side was ‘ザ・ワードⅡ’, otherwise known as ‘The Word II’. Enjoy – it is a thing of rare beauty.
