Style of Sound Premiere: Haioka’s ‘Now & Zen’ EP
We’re pleased to be premiering Tokyo producer Haioka’s new single Now & Zen, the first of two singles to be pre-released in the wake of his second full length studio album from the forward-thinking Berlin-based label Emerald & Doreen.
In Now and Zen, listeners are transported into two distinct worlds which make up the Haioka sound. In Now and Zen’s title track, one is treated to a series of percussive moments which ebb and flow to create a mystic journey dotted with other worldly sounds.
On the second track 8 Million, Haioka takes listeners by the hand and diverts them into a different world altogether which is atmospherically urban and all blissed out. One could listen to this track on headphones all day wandering throughout the city of one’s choosing.
Needless to say, the single is a taste of all good things to come in full album format this November 2016 on Emerald & Doreen.
