   0 reviews  -  874 views
    S・F・X is a 1984 album by Japanese electronic musician Haruomi Hosono. The album is his first solo album after Yellow Magic Orchestra and the first Japanese album to have been recorded with digital synthesizers. Credited also is "Friends of Earth", as Hosono would later form a band with this name. The album is the first album released by label Non Standard, a record label created between Hosono and Teichiku Records to release the technopop/hip-hop styled material he worked on.

    The 1988, 1993 and 2001 reissues of S・F・X contain tracks from Non-Standard Mixture, an EP created by Hosono the same year as the album.
