The Japanese producer will release his second album, this time through Samurai Horo, in October.
Japanese artist (and one-time RA Podcaster) Yu Asaeda is known for a meticulous and often experimental take on bass-heavy dance music that spans drum & bass, techno, dubstep and beyond, developing a more freeform approach as time goes on. Cutting his teeth on French label 7even, where he released his debut solo album Bilateral last year.
Earlier on in 2014, he debuted on Berlin label Samurai Horo, which will handle the release of this second one. Reportedly cobbled together from a prolific few months which produced over 40 tracks, Binaural is a heavily stripped-back record "using organic, often found sounds as harmonic and percussive signatures," according to the press release, "travelling further and further into uncharted sonic and rhythmic territory." Binaural continues the trend of the once vinyl-only label moving into CD and digital territory, but it'll come in double-vinyl format as well.
Before the album's release, Asaeda will also release the Dirt EP on October 3rd. You can stream clips from it below.
