It’s a busy week here at Frission HQ. We’ve introduced a few new members to the family and we have a few more delights on the way.
Today we announce a brand new show from Tokyo based artist, Yurei.
Yurei is a 22-year-old American producer, multi-instrumental and DJ based in Fukuoka and Tokyo Japan. His music career and reputation were launched to greater heights following the release of his first EP, Now, I Am Become Death, which was supported by reputable blogs and collectives like Next HQ, Acid Stag, Top Cats, and much more.
yurei has a distinct style which combines live instrument usage (saxophone, piano and guitar) and calls influence from a variety of sources including heavy metal and bebop jazz.
He has been featured on multiple radio stations and shows including soulection, Stay Cool Radio, Berlin FM, and has done live shows for the Japan’s notable block.fm.
On top of consistent releases, his live show presence is unmistakable. Having played shows all around Japan, at notable venues including Vision, Circus Tokyo, Club Cats, and The Trump Room, he is embarking on a Asia tour in November to expand his reach in Asia and eventually worldwide.
yurei is currently working on his highly anticipated new album “yūgen,” which is set to drop early 2018.
A description of the show Yurei’s own words:
I decided to name the show ‘Visceral Radio” after my most recent song, because I consider my DJ style to be rather “Visceral” meaning that rather than making sure every single detail is perfect like each transition etc, I’d rather read the crowd and vibe w/ them that way making it a much more emotional experience than that of something relating to intellect. In the radio show, I’ll be playing the top of my monthly digs, with genres ranging from Future Beats, House, Techno, Future Funk, Trap, and so much more.
The show will air monthly from Friday 17th at 19:00 Irish time. If you miss the live show a replay will be available on our website soon after.
