Unclassifiable artist, Yosi Horikawa is a star of japanese electronic music and he uses « field recording » in his artistic productions which combine Nature and urban environnement. Bird’s tweet, sound of the waves or city’s noises, everything seems to be an inspiration for this musician, producer and sound designer. His work is an eclectic mix of sound. There is so much precision and sonic detail in each track than each time you listen its a new adventure, a new sound. He manipulates percussion, ethnic chants and slightly new-age keyboards. Yosi has a knack for picking evocative sounds that speak to us, whatever the story. Sitting somewhere between locked percussive grooves and psychoacoustic postcards, his atmospheres confound as much as they reveal. He has many influences like: Jack DeJohnette, Lester Bowie, Pete Rockor DJ Premier.
