Apparently Yasutaka Nakata and Contemode aren't the only names one should associate with great techno-pop coming out these days. Producer Ōnishi Terukado and his label, D-Topia, are further establishing themselves as the next best thing.

One of their current stars includes Saori@destiny. If you're already familiar with other contemporaries like Perfume, there really isn't much to explain except the subtleties. Saori@destiny's music tends to lean more towards the 'techno' part of 'techno-pop,' and is suited for the dance floor. Longer instrumental breaks, more 90's throwback samples. There's even a cover of TRF's 'Ez Do Dance' on here. The vocals tend to stand out a bit more clear with less of the vocoder and autotune that we've all come to associate so closely with the current techno-pop scene.

As far as techno-pop albums go, this one is a little more straightforward, but a tad more focused. Only clocking in at roughly 30 minutes, there is hardly a chance for you to catch your breath and reflect. Although there aren't many surprises, it doesn't take away from the fact that it's extremely catchy. If you're a fan of any of Nakata's works, you'll be very pleased with Saori@destiny.
