Bringing some twisted, reggae infused house to your ears is Keita Sano a producer from Okayama, Japan. Incorporating a hypnotic, downtempo vibe with some heavy yet intricate production, coupled with vocal snippets “Search” is seriously infectious. The track is taken from his forthcoming 70-minute cassette which blends house, techno, jungle and much more. Sano spent his early years with Jazz and studied ceramic spinning for a short spell in Okinawa. Now he uses MPC, Electribe-SX, an old MTR, and a lot of effector to make music. “Jazz music still inspires him, though this dense blend of electronics doesn’t bear so many signs of it other than a distinct free-ness and constant sense of melody.” Listen to “Search” below and stream the album in full here.

Keita Sano “Holding New Cards” is out on May 5th via 180.
