Wata Igarashi at Rural Festival 2019

Relive the Japan­ese tech­no leg­end at full force on home soil. 

Rur­al is always a spe­cial event for me. Play­ing in the Japan­ese moun­tains in front of my friends, it means a lot. Last year I was on the Sun­day night, full of stars, in between Func­tion and Alessan­dro Cor­ti­ni. With a 3 hour slot, I had the chance to dive deep and do what I want­ed. It was a real­ly pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence for me so I thought it would be nice to share the record­ing with you all. Thanks for lis­ten­ing and hope to see you on a dance­floor soon, Wata.”

Wata’s says it best! Over the three hours, he cap­tures you into his world tak­ing you on a son­ic voy­age of the high­est order. He gets devi­ous in the open­ing hour offer­ing deep cuts that speak to the body with their author­i­ta­tive low-end response. Once he has you seduced into his son­ic land­scape, he slow­ly works his way up to an all-out tech­no assault show­cas­ing the many facets of a sound he has mas­tered. It’s hyp­not­ic, psy­che­del­ic and dili­gent­ly unmer­ci­ful. Try it out below!
