Naoto Taguchi, originally from Sapporo and currently living in Tokyo, is an audiovisual artist with a strong musical background (having played the piano since his early childhood) who is also interested in programming, photography, design in general and spinning records as a DJ and beatmaking.
He locates himself between minimalist electronica, dubmatics and quirky experimental sound. ‘Nostalgia’ is his international debut and shows a wonderful sense of detail in his structures, whilst never betraying his inate melodic progressions. This is one of the most fun but delicately made records we have put out to date.

A glaze of frost envelops you as you open your eyes to a frozen blue sky reflecting in millions of icy mirrors around you.
Curled up in a cotton nest, protected from this transition of seasons by a coat of fragility and love, the cold can't seem to reach you. Separated from your own reality, the outside world is like a faded polaroid that already lived its life, clumsily looping in a reassuring kind of déjà vu filtered by forgotten memories.
An aural cesura skimming the borders of certainty. Dotflac
The two sides to producer Steve White’s music—futurism and soulfulness—sit more comfortably together than ever before on his latest album as Steve Spacek, which balances boundary-testing sonics with earnest, heart-on-sleeve lyrics. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 11, 2018
