Album artwork for Whole Numbers Play The Basics by Casino Versus Japan

After 15 years, Casino Versus Japan’s Whole Numbers Play the Basics is finally getting a cassette release.

This limited edition reissue contains the alternate track sequence that was exclusive to the original, limited vinyl edition of the album, and includes the rare track “Echo Counting” which is not available on CD or digitally. Casino Versus Japan’s mesmerizing third album marked an early transition in his career as he moved from the bliss and summer joy found in Go Hawaii to the sound of life after the endless summer, allowing for a moodier, more introspective record. Hip-hop beats, dark tones, airy melodies, and hearty bass patterns show off a musical mind informed by sources ranging from the classic works of David Axelrod and Pink Floyd to more contemporary heroes like Boards of Canada and My Bloody Valentine. This one is a true feast for lovers of sound.
