PRESS RELEASE: Michael Mishima, a half Japanese half Austrian DJ and Producer, releases his "Yamato EP" on "Electronic Petz" after several releases on different labels under cooperation with several international artists (Erphun, Tony Thomas, Hiroki Esashika, etc). Michael Mishima started to work on "Yamato" in 2008. The concept behind "Yamato" was a musical fusion of Japanese and European dance music/culture. Therefore finding the right remix crew took time but finally - in May 2009 - the idea has become reality, offering great transcontinental cooperations with leading European and Japanese artists. While the Original Mix is quite simple and straight the additional versions of both packages make this release a bunch of colorful musical flowers. Europe meets Japan and Progressive House meets Tech House...as always the artwork is handled by Real DC www.realdc.it
please have a preview of YAMATO (Remixes 2009 Italian & Japanese Edition)
