Koji Ono – Incognito EP [Chuwanga]

Koji Ono weaves balearic, deep house and boogie influences into a sensual poolside tapestry fit for the laziest of afternoons and headiest of sunsets. For fans of classy, jazz-inflected house stylings.

Four tracks that roll along with a soft breeze and easy lilt. Pitch it down a little and you’ll see what I mean. Sea-soaked synthesiser pads ring out over crisp claps. A record that I can’t help but describe via excessive alliteration. Stunning bass work that sounds anything but synthesised- there’s a real emphasis on ’natural’ feeling sounds used to create a set of deeply immersive mid-tempo cuts.

Breezy and slightly cosmic, the 45turns way.

Incognito EP is available on digital and 12″ vinyl at Bandcamp
