Fuminori Kagajo & Nicole Mitchell “Free 2 B”

We are very proud for our latest addition to the label’s hall of fame, yet another producer from Japan, the much hyped Fuminori Kagajo. You won’t be surprised by the fame Fuminori currently holds as in his “Free 2 B”, alongside exquisite vocals by Nicole Mitchell, Fuminori delivers a killer soulful mix, guaranteed to yearn for more. Luyo steps on stage with a brilliant deep soul mix, with a stripped down vibe that ingeniously takes the vocals into a more intimate world. DMP aka Doctor Music Project whom Simone Barbaresi is half of, deliver a pure beat driven house mix perfect for the bigger rooms.

Fuminori Kagajo / Chase Down EP




Artist: Fuminori Kagajo
Title: Chase Down EP
Release Date: October 24, 2016
Label: Roots Underground Records

Italian based Roots Underground Records is always seeking hot talents in the contemporary electronic scene and for its second vinyl release takes a trip to Japan to meet the soulful addicted Fuminori Kagajo: a DJ, producer, also involved in band projects, whose sound appeared on well-respected house imprints such as Fatsouls Records, Trippin Records, Slip’N’Slide, King Street Sounds, just to mention a few.

The guy from Sapporo delivers a four-track EP moving through a so delightful sound synergy made of US’ house-inspired backbones, 70’s funk allure and jazz-fusion treatments, helped by stunning musicians as the keyboards wizard Takuto Kudo, the bass player Sei Takeuchi, and the horns of Kengo Ono (Alto sax), Mutsumi Takeuchi (Tenor sax), Kogo Takeuchi (Baritone sax), Yasunori Sugo (Trumpet). 70’s-influenced ivories permeate both tunes on the A side: while the title-track “Chase Down” is driven by a percussive mantra along with keyboards in hot pursuit to support the rhythm section; “Aggregation” takes shape from a deep train pattern and sets the keys free to stand above by highly dynamic variations. Amazing opening on the flip side with a fast-paced joyful tropicalia: “The Tropics” comes as an Afro-Latin evocation which sees a massive instrumental intervention of the Kagajo’s trusty ensemble and especially the four-element brass section brings to the track a certain nice retro flavour. Closing the record with “Depth Of The Forest”, we’re back to more contemporary feelings of house deepness crossed by a must-have bright keyboards solo.

Equipment used – Hardware: Nord Lead 2, Korg MS2000, Akai MPC2000 XL – Software: Logic Pro X, NI Komplete 9, NI Maschine 2

Fuminori Kagajo & Sheree Hicks / No Place Like Home

今回は僕もよくDJでプレイしているヴォーカリストSheree Hicksとのコラボ!!
リミキサーには最近人気が高まってきたWipe The Needle!




Artist: Fuminori Kagajo & Sheree Hicks
Title: No Place Like Home
Release Date: October 3, 2016
Label: Makin’ Moves

We’re very excited to welcome two new international friends to the label, producer Fuminori Kagajo from Japan and Sheree Hicks from Chicago.

We’d always admired Fumi’s work for some time and were a big fan of his quality productions. When he got in touch and said he’d done a track with Sheree Hicks we were even more excited! The original version oozes class, tight production and exceptional singer/song writing from Sheree.

Sheree has been on fire this year with a whole host of tracks released on labels such as Honeycomb music, POJI Records and her own label Chic Soul Music and on this release she doesnt disappoint.

The package also features Uk’s Wipe the Needle on remix duties. Lee Gomes aka Wipe The Needle doesnt do many remixes but we felt he could work the song in a different way and boy has he done that and pretty much created a new song!
