Wata Igarashi contributes track to XLR8Rplus release
Landing on the third edition of XLR8Rplus is Japanese techno legend Wata Igarashi.
As of recent the online music outlet Xlr8r have expanded into a record label with their XLR8Rplus series. The series is a new subscription service supporting independent music and journalism. “Each month we will share unreleased exclusive tracks from different artists that we feel are pushing the scene forward in inspiring ways. These tracks will be available for download in high quality .wav format for the duration of one month; only subscribers for that particular month will have them.”
This months edition features tracks from Roman Flügel, Einzelkind and a very familiar face in Wata Igarashi. In the short snippet below you will find Wata’s addition “Drift Away” is a high tempo cut infused with spacey pads, arpeggiated melodies that are neatly packed with gritty distorted drums. His crafty use of reverb gives the track depth leaving room in the mix for its hypnotic synth lines to dominate the cut and to really capture the listener. Take a listen below!
