The recent repressing of Soichi Terada’s catalogue has led to music nerds and journalists alike to scour record stores and the internet in search of more undiscovered audio treasures from Japan. This has led many to discover the charms of Tokyo’s So Inagawa who, for over a decade now, has gained a cult following for his brand of classy minimal house, drawing comparison with records by legendary imprint Perlon.
Just in time for a host of new fans comes the release of So Inagawa’s most impressive record yet, ‘Elsewhere’. The track brings a classic slice of atmospheric, dubby and truly hypnotic minimal house which, like the best Japanese electronic records, is imbued with senses of melancholy, grandeur and beauty. It is quite simply one of the finest and most slept on house tracks of the year.
‘Elsewhere’ features on So Inagawa’s Integritithm release. It’s out now on Cabaret Recordings.
