ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TOKYO507 is a new project from music producer Mark Southeron and singer songwriter and television presenter Hayden Turner.
Together, they have worked on many projects over the past 15years. Both are Sydney born.

Producer ,songwriter and musician Mark brings an eclectic mix of styles to the fore. Mark worked as guitarist ,songwriter and programmer and Hayden, singer/songwriter for Aussie bands , Field of Mars and Ice Jupiter Groove.

Mark's love for producing music began as a teenager listening to Yello records and writing and recording tunes with his school friend Todd Emslie on a Boss D110 drum machine, Korg Poly 800 and a guitar.

Hayden started to front Sydney based synth outfit 'Carnival of Lost Souls' and crossed paths with Mark, which lead to working together for many years .

A theme that is being used more on recent productions is the use of jazzed guitar sounds and silky vocals over smooth electronic dance/lounge beats.

Mark has many label releases, as well as film tracks and a huge list of remixes for established artists and labels, including Ted Mulry, The Atlantics, Stella One Eleven, Gilli Moon, Amuka, and is a producer and remixer with Kult Records NY.

Mark is based in Sydney, Australia and Hayden in London, UK. Hayden records vocals wherever he is travelling in the world and then, from their respective computers, they send arrangements of music and vocals to each other and what comes out is TOKYO507.

They work with many different musicians, including Hylton Mowday,Wolfgang Uhl and Todd Emslie, to add different textures to each track.All tracks are then mixed and mastered by Paul Bryant at Main Street Studios.

Cadence Revolution

Nine tracks of music that can chill you or lift you up with their hypnotic groov
Blending elements of chill, house, a touch of swing for an up-tempo beat, thru the use of layered keyboards, jazzed guitars, sighing horns and ethereal vocals Tokyo 507 offer up nine tracks of music that can chill you or lift you up with their hypnotic groove, and is a good effort worth picking up.

Technically Tokyo 507's second self titled release is actually their first full length CD, after last years five track EP, that show case the long distance collaborative efforts of members; Australian Mark Southern (producer/songwriter/musician) and ex-Aussie, and now London based, Hayden Turner (songwriter/singer).

The elements of chill are best heard in the chilled out opening track 'Share Some Love' where the plaintive moan of the harmonica echoes the emotion of Turners aching vocals and Southern's masterful use of the guitar in the closing track 'Free', that will remind you of U2's The Edge's guitar work from MLK off of the Unforgettable Fire CD.

The duo pick things up in 'Body Electric' with jazzy guitar riffs, while elements of dance drive the beat of 'Bamboo Baby', and jazz and touches of swing create the moving vibe of 'Curious Groove'.

The vocal work of Hayden Turner is never allowed to over power the music, and instead one can feel the effort of restraint reflecting and mirroring pent up emotions and energy that want to break loose, and one wonders what would happened if they were allowed to break free.

While Mark Southern weaves a tapestry of sound with electric jazz and the crisp staccato of flamenco guitar riffs, sometimes alone or together in organic rhythms around simple horn sequences.

Together the music they create is worth giving a listen to and makes their next release something to keep and ear out for.
