Kageroh Records, an independent label based in Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture, was founded by Kuhki Imamura, also known as a member of Viola Renea. This is the label number 8th cassette book compilation. The split LP compilation with Zero Records released in the same year included Kaoru Sato, Viola Renea, Kumiko Suyama, Ché-SHIZU, and other artists with a history of releases occupied, however It's big point that this cassette mainly features artists who are almost unknown except for He Was, Totsuzen Danball. Notably "Konjou" by Labberish, which starts out like ritual in somewhere and then moves into a dope "ondo" zone of drums, synths, percussion, Etel Font who appears to be one of the members with the description "Viola Renea Turkist" performs "Gokurakucho" which is like tracing a distant memory on a boxy garden atmosphere, "Lungi", an electronic dreamy pop by Mozarte Jugend, and experimental wave tune "Arable" by P.T.A's of Cragale, are excellent. The tracks are full of edgy quality and almost only available on this cassette. Superb one. A limited release of 300 numbered copies, which is extremely hard to find.

Viola Reneaのメンバーでもある今村空樹が、兵庫県西宮市を拠点に活動した自主レーベルかげろうレコード。本作はレーベル8番となるカセットブックコンピレーション。同年リリースのゼロレコードとのスプリットLP版コンピレーションでは佐藤薫,Viola Renea,須山公美子,Ché-SHIZUはじめリリース歴のあるアーティストが占めていましたが、本カセットではHe Was,突然段ボール, P.T.A’s以外はほぼ無名に近いようなアーティストを中心に収録しているのも大きなポイント。とりわけどこかの儀式のような序盤からドラム、シンセ、パーカッションのドープ音頭ゾーンへ移るLabberishによる”Konjou”、Viola Renea Turkistと説明書きのあるメンバーの誰かと思わしきEtel Fontによる遠い記憶をたどるような箱庭スケール”極楽鳥”、谷崎テトラ率いる異能音楽集団Mozarte Jugendによる電子ドリーミーポップ”Lungi”、クラゲイル所属のP.T.A'sによるエクスペリメンタル・ウェーヴ”荒ブル”などなどほとんどこちらでしか聞けない音源かつエッジの効いたクオリティな曲だらけ。本当に出てこないナンバリング入り300部限定リリース。
