Utai IV: Reawakening – Kenji Kawai

Want to get something in your earholes that is equal parts eerie, uplifting and foreboding? Then look no further than Kenji Kawai’s Utai IV.

It was written by Kenji for the 1995 Japanese Anime classic, Ghost in the Shell. The film was remade recently and picked up a lot of criticism for white-washing (plus being generally a bit crap). In the same way, this iconic track was butchered by Steve Aoki – he brought some completely unwelcome bro-step energy to it and the whole thing was a mess.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it in its full, unadulterated glory.
