My Favorite Robot welcome legendary house producer Satoshi Tomiie for his first ever EP on the label. The ‘Jam EP’, as the name suggests, features two tracks recorded live, with no computer, by this iconic producer and is backed with a superb remix from Mateo Murphy.
Japanese born, New York based Tomiie is best known for co-writing stone-cold classic ‘Tears’ alongside Frankie Knuckles, but in the decades since has put out three all- encompassing albums as well as countless EPs on his own SAW and the likes of No.19 Music, Kaoz Theory and Holic Trax. A student of jazz and classical piano, he always imbues his music—and hybrid live-DJ sets—with genuine musicality and melody.
We grabbed the first play of the futuristic, Detroit-tinged ‘Namiura’ is hi tech techno soul with icy hi hats and rolling kicks getting you on your toes. It’s a timeless piece that exudes quality and will appeal to fans of more cerebral sounds.
