Shinjuku Thief leader Darrin Verhagen created this album in 1994 inbetween the release of the Witch Hammer and Witch Hunter. It was commissioned by Vis a Vis (Canberra) as a soundtrack for a contemporary dance work examining man’s relationship with technology. Whilst its is still a lush evocative world, Verhagen’s trademark moody landscapes are augmented here with ambient techno and minimal IDM grooves, creating a rich dynamic blend of drama and intrigue.
“Prepare your senses for a wonderful journey.” – Darkwave Over Metropolis, AUSTRALIA
“Another great release from Dorobo.” – Manifold, US
Shinjuku Thief is the recording project of Australian musician and soundtrack composer, Darrin Verhagen. Whilst releases have varied in style — from gothic orchestral, tribal ambient, through to more industrial genres — all are united by an intensely cinematic richness. The heyday for Shinjuku, and Darrin’s Dorobo label, was the fertile 1992-2002 decade, though Verhagen never stopped creating music. In Australia, he composes for contemporary dance, mainstage and experimental theatre, cable station idents, live productions and film. By day, he is also a soundtrack senior lecturer in the RMIT University Digital Media program.
