Beat In Me is back for its second release. Recognized for bringing some of the most cutting-edge Romanian DJs to his event series under the same name in Tokyo, RAHA keeps pushing the envelope with Beat in Me. This time he introduces, with sincere confidence, two Japanese artists he has long supported: Tomohiro Yano and Yuji Kobayashi.
“Sazae EP” features two original tracks from Tomohiro and Yuji, respectively, and a collaborative work from both, perfectly displaying their raw talent and individual styles.
‘BW 002’ finds Tomohiro Yano exploring sounds profoundly connected to the Romanian house scene: snappy drums, hypnotic midrange textures, and a whole panoply of very organically detailed soundscapes that work their way into the subconscious. Below the veil, a constant kick-drum on the 1’s and the 3’s keeps everything marching like a dance ritual on a dancefloor.
Yuji Kobayashi expands on the idea of hypnotic dancefloor shamanism and showcases his meticulous drum programming and impeccable sound-design skills with ‘Mirror Ripples’. Modular bleeps, morphing basses, ghostly textures; everything here flows organically, like a sonic ecosystem to get lost in.
Closing the EP with a collaboration, Yuji and Tomohiro bring their best to the game. Together, they created an even deeper excursion into drum syncopation with deeply melodic undertones, a world of understated grooves made to get lost in time and space.
Displaying a unique knowledge of house and techno music with minimal character, “Sazae EP” seems like the perfect alternative for those thirsty for the type of tracks hailing from Romania, with an added Japanese sensibility that perfectly fits those dancefloors craving for intensely hypnotic grooves.
