KEN HAYAKAWA TO KICKSTART 2018 WITH A KILLER RELEASE
We warmly welcome Ken Hayakawa with his debut release on Audiomatique.
The man drops two chunks of exceptional house music – deep, rolling and a little bit gritty.
‘Ronald’ finds a shuffling groove and locks right in – a thick kick sets the pace while an almost motoric rhythm develops, augmented by sparking melodic shards and a deep and slightly menacing bass growl. As the track unfolds, Hayakawa also finds space for some epic string flourishes – a real tour-de-force.
‘Pennywise’ shares a similar approach to groove development, settling quickly into a tough body rocking vibe. Hayakawa then lets loose with the chopped up melodic lines and vocal pads – slick and funky stuff.
