Stream Yosi Horikawa's Debut Album
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Bubblin' Up Japanese producer Yosi Horikawa will release his debut full-length—an immersive journey through carefully crafted beatwork and highly detailed sound design—next week, but before then, is offering eager fans and curious listeners a chance to hear the 16-track Vapor now. Horikawa's record appears to be quite an ambitious undertaking for a first album, one that covers a wide range of sonic territory while attempting to marry the gifted producer's immense skill for aural sculptures with a loose, vaguely jazz-informed musicality. Below, the former RBMA graduate's forthcoming LP can be streamed in its entirety before it drops on June 24 via the First Word label.
