Go to your record shelf and pick out that quirky (and unforgettable!) folk record you found once at a flea market somewhere on your travels. Now imagine that sound complemented by vintage synthesizers, flutes, twangy surf guitars, a hell of a lot of space echo … & electronic downtempo beats! Takeshi’s Cashew (Laut&Luise Records, Berlin) is a psych-funk group that explores the boundaries of club culture, world music & 70’s psychedelia.

Takeshi’s Cashew recorded their debut album Humans In A Pool at their tiny DIY studio in Vienna in summer 2020: it’s a journey into cosmic krautrock, cumbia, afrobeat & disco, which can only be surpassed by one of their live performances – for which they’ve teamed up with the pojpoj agency, already home to artists like Khruangbin, l´Eclair and Yin Yin.
