New Yoshino Yoshikawa: “Slack Bubbling”

Earlier this year, Tokyo’s Yoshino Yoshikawa traveled to Seoul to play alongside the city’s Subbeat crew, a set of producers creating plenty of great music very much worth your time. Didn’t take long for the two sides to meet again, on the collective’s just-released compilation album Kitties #1. I would have bent my self out of shape to find a way to write about something themed as “Anyway 😺 Meow Meow,” but thankfully Yoshikawa’s contribution kicks thing off on a particularly upbeat note. It bounces along via chimes and a pleasant breeze of synthesizer, before a Daft-Punk-inspired hook comes along and tilts things up a bit. Yet happiness comes through all the same, from all portions. Listen above.
