EXPO BY ANCHORSONG

Thrumming bass drives this track by Japanese producer Masaaki Yoshida along. It gets right in your head - in a good way.
Born in Tokyo, Yoshida is now based in London and this track appears on his second full-length LP, Ceremonial, which came out in January. Heavily influenced by Afrobeat and the likes of Fela Kuti, Yoshida says “I came across The Vodoun Effect by Orchestre Poly-Rythmo at my local record shop. It had a profound effect on me, and I began to dig deeper into ‘70s African music. Everything sounded fresh to me, and I felt a need to make music reflecting these inspirations.”
