Moving abit away from the sunscaped music, we stop by the Romanian city Timisoara… where we find 2 Romanian cinematics called Felix Petrescu & Valentin Toma working under their alias Makunouchi Bento. With help from Stephanie Courant & Dan Damian they put together this magical, fimatic EP… filled with french talking and slow downtempo beats… mmm… and now for a nap.

Album Reviews

All you have to know about Paris' way of life! Great ambient/downtempo music. Organised chaotis abstract? God damn it, I couldn't explain it so I'll only say it's a really terrible EP, I just adore it and if you do too, go and listen to the remix of "Mipoetri" that has been released on Ogredung.

Makunouchi Bento is part of a balanced diet and is good for the heart. I love this one. :) Check out their EP at Kikapu, too. Read more...


In this EP Makunouchi Bento gets a mix of Downtempo and Ambient. I could imagine that the song mipoetri might be cool to hear with doing a chill snowboarding session down a mountain. Read more...


This is pure genius! I just love this jazz twisted combined with electronica downtempo deeep groove. Wow. This is talent, unaffected by today's radio sounds. Awesome. Where do you listen to? Where do you get your inspiration? I hear some Cinematic Orchestra in there. Love it. Read more...


Listened to your tracks and loved them like my own mother. Really gorgeous stuff that shows a remarkable resistance to music's current trends, preferring to forge it's own path. Great, great stuff you've got there good sir. Read more...


In 2002 eg granular synthesis, physical modelling etc was very different, difficult and oftwn cumbersome to use. Keep that in mind when listening to this super organic music. Still sounds like a little miracle to me. Read more...
