Following Time, Fujikawa contributed a track to Bill Laswell's Oscillations Remix CD/LP before Sub Rosa issued a second full-length CD, Strange or Funny-Haha?, in 1997. Another essential collection of sample-based chaos unlike most other happenings in contemporary electronica, Strange set a standard of quality even higher than its predecessor, and further argued for Fujikawa's status as one of the most important and original new voices in experimental post-techno. The somewhat less impressive Ticklish Matters appeared on Sub Rosa in 1998, along with a remix for American hip-hop group East Flatbush Project (included on the Tried by 12 remix album, co-released by Ninja Tune and Chocolate Industries in December 1998). In addition to his CDs, a trio of exclusive Bisk tracks can be found on Sub Rosa's excellent 1998 compilation, Water and Architecture, alongside selections by Seefeel, former Tortoise bassist Bundy Brown and (most appropriately) Uwe "Atom Heart" Schmidt, one of the few artists to whom Fujikawa's work owes a clear debt.
