Kido Yoji, 21 years old and probably the most impressive thing to come out of Japan in a while.
Having had a few tracks and reMixes knocking around for the last couple of years, Kido is in a place now to release a full EP on an unsuspecting world. Walking a line where Nu-Disco, Synth Funk and ElectroPop meet Kido masters all three styles and makes it look effortless. The EP’s lead track ‘Call A Romance’ is a smooth meeting of Funk and Disco with a Poppy vocal that on first listen you’d swear came out of LA. Heavy on the electro toms (and you know we love electro toms!) and ‘80’s style synthesizer stabs ‘Call A Romance’ has a groove that’ll see it getting a lot of play. One of our favourite double acts, Walter Sobcek,prove a reMix that takes the track to the next level, probably the stand-out reMix on the EP, the Sobceks rework the track into a reverby, majestic, ElectroPop epic. Blue Satellite also raise the bar with their reMix of ‘More than Real’, a rich Disco track with enough Funk and Talkbox to give Chromeo a run for their money!
