Merzbow is one of the most prolific and fearsome artists of the past few decades.  His earliest releases (dating from 1980) arrived in the form of limited, hand-made cassettes (on his own Lowest Music & Arts label), from 1990 onwards, CD became the format of choice, with much of his output released on his other label, ZSF.

Continually developing his style and technique, the mid ‘90s saw a flood of releases that embodied the sonically devastating, powerwash quality which helped put Merzbow on the map.  His popularity grew rapidly throughout the late 90s, and this flood of output continues with Merzbow having racked up a truly enormous catalogue, across an ever-increasing number of labels.  After years of rumour, in August 2000, the gargantuan “Merzbox” compilation was released, a 50 CD box set released on the Australian Extreme label.  Since then, Akita has moved from largely analogue-based methods into a more digital, laptop-based approach.
