If you’re a fan of artists like quickly, quickly, Anomalie, or Tennyson, you should really check this out. Rob Araujo’s skilful jazzy style really just blows my mind. Not only is he an amazing solo artist, but he’s collaborated with some big names like Tom Misch, Naji, VALENTINE, Ian Ewing, Anomalie, and more.
After a couple of promising releases and the very well received debut album, Plethoria, French producer L'indécis is back on Chillhop Records with a new EP "Playtime”; a relaxing and catchy release for instrumental hiphop and jazz-fusion fans.
Check out the full EP for some more jazzy, wonderfully chill beats.
Just came across the fine work of Marie Dahlstrom, and it’s been one of my greatest discoveries in a while. Her vocals capture so much beauty and soul, you can’t help but feel the vibes.
She recently teamed up with producer JNTHN STEIN to create a collection of songs titled “Kanel”. Of the 5 tracks, I had to make the difficult decision of selecting “Ask About Me” to feature, but every track on this EP is seriously gold, so if you like what you hear, definitely check it out in full!
yurei is a 22 year-old multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based in Fukuoka, Japan. His music career and reputation were launched to greater heights following the release of his first EP, Now, I Am Become Death, which was supported by reputable blogs and collectives like Next HQ, Acid Stag, Top Cats, and more. In addition to these accomplishments, he recently founded élan, an international lifestyle collective that includes individuals talented in the arts and music. They’ve already released a handful of tracks, so definitely check them out for some more awesome tunes.
yurei’s unique style blends his influences of everything from heavy metal to bebop jazz. In “Dancing With My Shadow”, yurei again delivers some fresh future trap beats, featuring live drums, wobbly basses, and of course, his signature abstract, jazzy sax lines. What’s not to love?
If you’re lucky enough to be in Fukuoka at the end of March, I would definitely recommend catching him at his next event, TREKKIE TRAX VS. YESTERDAY ONCE MORE VOL. 2, which will be held on March 24th at Kieth Flack Fukuoka. If not, don’t despair; yurei will definitely be making appearances in Tokyo in the near-future.

福岡を拠点にするアメリカ生まれの若手マルチプレーヤー、プロデューサー、DJ「yurei」。彼のサウンドはヘビー・メタルからビーボップ・ジャズに影響され続け、初リリースしたEP「Now, I am Become Death」がSkrillexのメディアプラットホーム「Nest HQ」や豪レーベル「Acid Stag」、インターナショナル・コレクティブ「Top Cats」などから絶賛されるほどの認知度を上げている。日本国内では数々のDJイベントに参加しつつ、日々音楽に磨きをかけている。その中で彼の新曲、「Dancing With My Shadow」はミステリー感がありつつ、パワフルでフルボディーのある重低音、そして「yurei」の独特なサックスが見事に重なり合い、安定感ある曲に仕上がっている。もはや誰も「yurei」を止められないだろう。
彼のパフォーマンスを見たければ、３月２４日の福岡「Kieth Flack」イベント「TREKKIE TRAX VS. YESTERDAY ONCE MORE VOL. 2」に足を運ぶがいい。日本の音楽のシーンを率いる「Trekkie Trax」と「 YESTERDAY ONCE MORE」とのパーティーを見逃すな！
