Wata Igarashi launches new label WIP

An imprint for his own out­put marks new direc­tions for the Japan­ese icon. 

Wata Igarashi has devel­oped a clear sound of his own. He brings togeth­er the euphor­ic and psy­che­del­ic, with his music stand­ing out for its crys­talline struc­tures and shim­mer­ing inten­si­ty. These results have been installed with releas­es on the likes of The Bunker NY, Bit­ta and Midgar to name but a few. Now the Japan­ese tech­no leg­end will launch his own label WIP (Wata Igarashi Pro­duc­tions / Work In Progress) to release his own music start­ing with an EP of cin­e­mat­ic works. 

A1. Clear
B1. Flow

Orig­i­nal­ly, I planned to start with a series of tech­no releas­es, but that is not what I am feel­ing like now. And so WIP01 is com­posed of two calmer and more reflec­tive tracks. Clear’ was made dur­ing cher­ry blos­som sea­son in Japan; the warmth and beau­ty of the start of spring inspired me. Flow’ is very sim­ple, I used just five oscil­la­tors and want­ed to cre­ate a feel­ing of flow, get­ting lost in fre­quen­cies as they mod­u­late organically.”
