Quotes: Another great ep from DC and Yosa. Definetely a talent to watch.. club + radio play.. Stuart Patterson / Rough Jam is a great trip! I have been playing it for a while now and it always a pleasure for the dancers. Thank you! Willie Graff / The killer one for me is Rough Trade. A real grower. Big support. Ashley Beedle
Info: Yosa is a young talented producer and DJ from Tokyo, Japan. He has already released on Supplemental, Resopal and Dirt Crew Records. With this EP on Drumpoet he comes with a more soulful and funky EP which is definitely has been influenced by the early sound of Lil’ Louis. Nothing but honest, rough and dirty house music. Ruff Jam is one hell of a tune, impossible to resist and real peaktime action as it’s supposed to be. None of the loopy modern house vibe in here, sounds like it could be from the early 90’s with this fresh vibe which only young producers really live. Tough Enough and Rough Trade go a bit deeper without loosing the groove and have referrences to Yosa’s love for 70’s jazz and funk records. This young man has definitely a bright future and I’m pretty sure that there’s more great music coming from this promising Japanese youngster!
