The Japanese jazz scene is currently hotter than ever. With high profiled bands like Soil & Pimp Session and Sleepwalker enjoying great success all over the world we now introduce the next big Jazz band from Japan. Quasimode is a 4 piece Jazz band based in Tokyo, Japan and was formed in 2002. Their sound is based on authentic jazz rhythms from the 60s and 70s. With a mixed club and Latin feel they deliver all their music live and have gained a strong support in their native Japan. On their recording debut Quasimode comes through with two amazing club Jazz bombs. First off is a killer cover version of UK Jazz hero Tubby Hayes and his hugely in demand 'Down In The Village' track from the mid 60s. On the b-side Quasimode deliver a self-written composition entitled 'Oneself ? LIKENESS' which is slightly deeper and spiritual but possibly even stronger.
