Sound Of Vast is set to welcome Shinichiro Yokota and The Mole for the second instalment in the label’s 5 Year Anniversary series.

Sound Of Vast is a Japanese label based in Amsterdam. Celebrating its five-year anniversary, the label is offering up five special V/A packages across 2019, each limited to just 250 copies. 

The series launched in May with an EP featuring Cosmin TRG (under his Com Sin alias), Yard One, and DJ Sodeyama (as The People In Fog.) There’s exclusive music still to come from the likes of Vid, Cinthie, San Proper, Akiko Kiyama, Subb-an, and more across the year ahead. 

Up next, Tokyo’s Shinichiro Yokota and Canadian artist The Mole each offer up a solo cut to mark the series’ second release. 

Tokyo-based Far East Recordings artist Shinichiro Yokota opens with “I Know You Like,” a harkening back to the days of soulful, musical house courtesy of jazzy synth lines, warm chords, and choppy bass running alongside a swinging drum groove and vocal hooks uttering the track’s title.

The Mole follows on the flip with “A Simple Day,” turning in a raw- and funk-infused workout with dusty drum sounds, looped guitar licks, warbling low-end tones, and an underlying psychedelic feel.
