Playing tracks by
Herbert, Kez YM, W&P Hgg, Alex Agore, Franck Roger and more.
Kez Ym and Franck Roger are the stars of the show this week..
Kez Ym, otherwise known as Kazuki Yamaguchi, is a musician from Tokyo who has picked up worldwide attention since getting seriously involved with the club music scene just 4 years ago. His organic, jazz-funk beat-down style has a lot in common with Detroit producers such as Theo Parrish and Moodymann.
Looking at Franck Roger’s formidable back catalog I feel a pang of regret that I haven’t come across his stuff sooner. What grabs me about his productions is the super tight, upbeat percussion which leaves you in no doubt that this is music for dancing. At the same time he can go in a totally dreamy direction, or moody, or just plain uplifting. There is no shortage of ideas and originality, with a clear musicality that beams through.
Thanks to everyone who listened in on Future Music radio or came along to the Deep House Cafe in Second Life. Enjoy the mix!
