If u go to JAPAN, this man is the perfect guide !
One of the Eklektik Records Homie offers this week to
Musique Large Blog an excellent selecta from
all his influences, loves and feelings in music.
Producer from Tokyo / Japan, multi-instrument player,
acoustic designer and crazy "human-hand-mic" sound sampler,
Yosi Horikawa write music as a real composer, picking in Mother
Nature ambiances and pure wood percussions rythms.
"I love the rhythm of black people.
When I was young and not so rich,
I strongly looked for the garbage like a instruments.
I used the steel can instead of the snare drum.
I beat my bed instead of the bass drum.
I made strange instruments with chop sticks & my desk instead
of wood bass. And I used the head phone instead of the mic...ehhehe!"
But Yosi's music is far from just using strange instruments,
it's a good combination between grooves and acoustic samples, far
from simple world music, more inventive and spiritual.
