Japan’s dear relationship with techno has produced some of the most skilled figures on the circuit at the moment: DJ Nobu, Wata Igarashi and Go Hiyama are just a few of the names getting booked to ply their trade on the international stage, as well as holding it down with equal consistency in the studio. It’s an underground scene that fosters real talent.
Ryogo Yamamori fits neatly into that tradition. Sitting at the helm of his Tokyo-based label 951beat, he’s also put material out on the likes of Ovum and Purebox, which has been turning heads for a few years now. Citing key players such as Underground Resistance, Jeff Mills and Derrick May as his original inspiration, he’s been producing for almost two decades now since he first put foot in the studio back in ’99.
His latest EP, a two-tracker entitled Yureru, dropped via 951beat in late April, and is a good example of what he can do. Today, we offer one of its cuts—”Hebiichigo”— for download. Rife with trance-inducing, almost drone-like synth action, it’s an unrelenting five minute techno workout that just keeps building and building.
Yureru is out now, and can be purchased via Beatport. Download “Hebiichigo” below via WeTransfer.
