A leading figure of Japanese techno, Wata Igarashi is known for his deep, trippy, psychedelic sound. Listening to his tracks, which he describes as ‘cosmic drama’, is like being beneath a dark sky that’s expertly coloured with little exploding fireworks and shooting stars. The artist’s arpeggiated releases on labels like Figure, Time to Express and Semantica underscore his brilliance as a sound designer; precisely engineered for maximum impact, they subtly stand out on the dance floor. In Igarashi’s DJ sets, his tight mixing and frequency control create a potent blend of energy and emotion.
