This month marked the release of a new EP on Black Acre, an infamous record label with an aspirational taste for the odd. However, their latest EP came in the form of three tracks from Jun Kamoda and demonstrated that the label still has a penchant for summer months spent on the dancefloor. The Japanese producer teamed up with the Bristol label to release an EP rife with exotic samples and inspired licks. This one was purpose built for the clubs, a release packed with interesting twists and turns.
We caught up with him with as he talks underground dance in Japan.
