Ryuichi Sakamoto

1980
Alfa

Sakamoto’s second solo album is both an established b-boy classic yet futuristic enough to still feel enigmatic and underexplored. With fellow collaborators like Dennis Bovell and XTC’s Andy Partridge, Sakamoto staked out a space between synth-pop, post-punk, and dub. Existential meditations like “Thatness and Thereness” slot alongside thrilling beat experiments like “E-3A” and the certified early electro classic “Riot in Lagos.”
