about

yokotsuka yuuya is a young electronic music producer from Tokyo, Japan. “To You After Two Years” is his much anticipated debut album following some digital releases. His sound is very solid and cold using “noise” to create three-dimensional beats, and constructs the atmosphere with diverse sounds like processed voice, piano and synthesizers in geometic patterns. His concept is to create a “space“ where the past, present and future meets, and the actual output sounds like somewhere between techno, electronica and IDM but doesn’t fall into any of those categories. Very difficult to describe but surely the cutting edge of the present electronic music.

yokotsuka yuuya is a first release from kaico, a sub label of SPEKK, Tokyo organized by Tomoki Takeuchi.

あのAmetsubもコメントを寄せる、国内シーン最注目の若手音楽家による渾身のデビューアルバムが登場!AOKI takamasaやAlva Notoにも通ずる冷静でソリッドなビートに、プロセッシングされた肉声やピアノ、シンセによる幾何学的なメロディが絡み合う、究極にスマートな最先端電子音楽。単なるエレクトロニカやテクノ、IDMとは一線を画すジャンルを超えた傑作!

「お世辞抜きで、本当に良かったです。昨今はカテゴライズされたフォーマットに沿ったような音楽が多いですけど、違う居場所を見つけようとしてる姿勢があって、実際に実現できてると思います。他の音楽とは違う違和感、例えきれいに収まっていなくてもそれこそが光るものであって、この作品には昔感じたような音楽の面白みがちゃんと存在してると思います」ー Ametsub

Recommendation notes:

"I aint flattering, this is really something. Nowadays, I hear many music that could be easily categorized, but this one is struggling to find it’s own place which is working quite well. What’s so special about this album is this ”non-adaptable” feeling, and even though it doesn’t fit perfectly to anything, this is the freshness in music that I felt back in the old days.." - Ametsub

"When I listened to this album, it reminded me of my childhood - the period when I was studying in school and doing my homework. I think the sounds in this album gets into you and opens the gate of your memories. For me it was childhood and school. " - Martin Schulte
