At long last, were finally able to break the gender barrier with our first female producer, who comes to you the land of the Rising Sun. Yukiyo Takabayashi trained pianist with 15 years of experience, she has been composing house rhythms for the last 5 years, Yukiyo has been influenced by such producers as MAW, Sensory Productions, Basement Jaxx, Ron Trent, and Grant Nelson, to name a few, Her piano work and arrangements are some of the best weve heard, especially from, a newcomer. This Brazilian flavored E.P. is uplifting deep house offering, rich with colors and textures that wet the palate. So if your really a Dj who stands apart from the pack, then this is the record for you, Heavy Club and Airplay is expected, so dont just stand there reading this piece of paper; put it on the turntable immediately and turn it up LOUD!!! .
