Portopia ’81 “Recuerdos De La Alhambra”

portopia81-stardustI’m only slightly familiar with Portopia ’81, at least as this guise.  Hiroshi Mizuhiro has a lot of pseudonyms under his belt, the most notable being Buchikamishi (I put this tape out a while back).  Portopia ’81 first appeared on his Ginjoha label last year and has since released a tape on the excellent SicSic as well.  “Recuerdos De La Alhambra” comes from his forthcoming Field Hymns tape, Stardust Memory, and is a doozy.  Playful leads hop around on a pulsating sea of rising keyboard sequences and shuffling rhythms.  Like a lost soundtrack to a new age Zelda game that never existed, Portopia ’81 has my full and undivided attention.
