Yamato Unveils Fantastic ‘Essentials’ EP on Japanese-Based Label Avex


Recommended Posts

Yamato has had a career that seems like some sort of movie. Yamato won “WORLD DJ CONTEST 2013 JAPAN” hosted by Coca Cola. He was then asked by Avicii at the world contest, held in Ibiza, to perform with him at the festival in Budapest, Hungary, which led him to become the first Japanese DJ/producer to perform with Avicii.

With the backbone of having been a technical developer of Pioneer CDJ series, Yamato’s superb skill and DJ style that utilizes Pioneer DJʼs CDJ is known to be a style that no one can imitate and it has been renowned and admired from all over the world, attracting audiences at big festivals and clubs in Japan and all over the world. His performance videos series on YouTube has exceeded 30 million views, having fans all over the world and support from A-List names such as Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Lil Jon and many more.

Now, he’s back with an impressive EP, titled ‘Essentials‘, signed to the Japanese based imprint Avex. The title track kicks off the EP with bright melodies, driven by a powerful vocal performance from Mike Macdermid. It’s a fresh twist on progressive house, one that feels perfect for a song to wash over the festival grounds at sunset.

Reflection” follows, featuring Poe Leos, seamlessly blending a pop-oriented style with massive electro house segments that ricochet through your speakers. “Shizuku” comes next, yet again showcasing Yamato’s versatility with a beautiful vocal sample paired with tranquil ambiance. Teaming up with Maydenfield, both artist craft all of the alluring soundscapes into a peak time anthemic tune. “Neon Lights” invites Macdermid back on vocal duties, capping off the EP in perfect fashion with a more soulful, slower-paced house music framework.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
