Having blessed the world with a new two-track limited 12 inch recently legendary Tokyo DJ and producer Toshio Matsuura has announced a new album.
LOVEPLAYDANCE – 8 Scenes from The Floor eight tracks focus on covers, putting classic or influential tracks in a new context, spanning a cross-section of Matsuura’s taste.
From Bugge Wesseltoft’s 2001 epic ‘Change’ to Rotary Connection classic ‘Black Gold of the Sun’, or Flying Lotus’ stunning ‘Do The Astral Plane’, the scope of the music reflects the breadth of Matsuura’s diverse interests.
The LP features a stellar cast of musicians that includes Tom Skinner, Yussef Dayes, Mansur Brown, Nubya Garcia, Yazz Ahmed and Cuban vocalist Daymé Arocena to name a few.
Listen to the mighty ‘L.M II’ and take a voyage through the vibrant shades of modern and vintage jazz, electronic and driving percussion that brings variation and new life to an already stellar track.
