stream :: Keita Sano - Sweet Bitter Love EP
For Spring Theory's fourth release, label-head Guillaume connects across the Pacific with well received electronic producer from Okayama, Japan going by way of Keita Sano. The very talented Japanese native has had releases on Mister Saturday Night, Strictly Groove Recordings, and most recently 1080p Collection. With his latest, Sweet Bitter Love EP, he compiles four new productions including a killer remix from Jacques Renault, all of which showcase this producer to be a very eccentric one in the best way.
The A-side features 'Once I Found A Diamond', an eastern anthem very fitting to the Spring Theory sound pool - as it's dance-floor ready, bass flooring, sweet vocal melody will have you hooked. Like echoes from the past - Keita Sano patches vintage with modern in, 'Sweet Bitter Live', seamlessly collaging what sounds like an old classic tropical record in a sporadic arrangement that works ever so harmoniously with his loose rhythms. Following to close out the record is 'Bouzouk' a Middle Eastern cadence that immediately reminds me of Omar Souleyman yet bleeds a cosmic tribal techno sweep that cannot be ignored.
Out on May 25th. The EP is now available for purchase on 12" and digital via Spring Theory's bandcamp.
