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.
