A familiar face amidst the undercurrent of Londons club scene Kay Suzuki could well be called an unsung hero of sorts. As a producer he has released an impressive back catalogue of music, far more expansive than you might be inclined to believe or assume. With an array of outings on Round In Motion and recent collaborations with Leonidas his music has been championed by purveyors of the finest funk and balearic, his tropical sensibilities have run deep throughout his production and the music has a sun kissed sensibility. Sometimes those who shout the loudest are the most heard but that is not to say that those who don't aren't as capable. Kay Suzuki is full of surprises...
We invited him to contribute to our eight tracks series as he guides us through Japanese fusion.
Kay Suzuki will play at General Public this weekend. See HERE.
Yuji Toriyama & Ken Morimura - Night Together 
Yuji Toriyama is an unsung guitarist/producer outside of Japan, but he left some beautiful tracks throughout 80s on his albums and had so many pop music hits under his production from 90s onwards.?The keyboardist Ken Morimura is also a member of world famous Japanese salsa band called Orquesta Del Sol. This record was made for TV program for Aerobics which was as popular as Yoga these days in 80s. Well programmed heavy drum machine, fat analogue synths, sharp guitar chops & solo with feeling-good melodies. All the key ingredients of Japanese 80s fusion are there.
