If there's one culture in the world where balance plays an unequivalent role, it's that from the land of the Rising Sun. Japanese culture is wildly fascinating on many, many levels. So we are happy to introduce to you our very first Japanese signing: Imugem Orihasam to teach us more about the oriental ways. Imugem delivered 4 stunning and diverse tracks for his debut EP on BALANS. From friendly and uplifting (Beware) to ultradark (Subcutanteous Tissue), abstract & dubby (Detoxification) and homelistening jazzed up electronics (Aquarium). It seems like Imugem doesn't want to narrow himself down to a particular (sub)genre or niche without losing that pure techno feel in his productions. We encourage that off course, especially if the results are this beautiful and without loss of the producers very own soundsignature. Imugem manages to pull all of that of, seemlessly without effort.Ambivalent - "WOW! This is a really nice release. I'm all over Detoxification."Norman Nodge - "Solid enough tunes.
