Hakobune is Takahiro Yorifuji. He releases an enormous amount of fabulous guitar-based drone work and regularly performs live, as well as hosting various events in Japan. Takahiro very kindly agreed to do a remix for the Geskia! bonus release '323 Sayonara Memories Remixed' in 2012. He also released 'Adrift' in collaboration with Pleq in the same year on sister label Nomadic Kids Republic.
