Berlin-via-Japan's Kazuki Yamaguchi has been stolidly chipping away at the coal face of house music since the late 2000s for the likes of Gerd's 4 Lux, Berlin Bass Collective, Cologne's Yore and Leicester's hidden gem City Fly. His debut long-player, for MCDE man Pablo Valentino's Faces, has been a fair while coming, but worth every second of the wait. From the first swinging Jersey beats and off-beat chords of opener 'Console Swing', you're fully locked in. 'Feel The Vibe' has warm organs, sliced and diced vocals and blasts of shining brass. 'Music Is Playing' is that wonky stripe of weirdo house to get Theo Parrish and Dixon Jr crowd on side. 'Thru The Night' is clamorous jazz mastery, while 'New Skyline' reverses its way to discotheque glory, a dusty, oddball vibe to tip the party people over the edge. Blazing.
