The new Solar Distance release is from Japanese artist U:ICHI who plays regularly at Tokyo’s world famous club WOMB. Having warmed up for many of the world’s top DJ’s such as Dosem, Coyu and Edu Imbernon, his melodic sound has earned him a well-respected following both at home and internationally.
On top of being a well-respected DJ, U:ICHI has released music on labels such as Nothing But, Groove Factory, Galaxy Recz and Bass Works Recordings. Often collaborating with Amaoh or DJ Yoko, some of his more notable releases include a remix of Alberto Ruiz for Stickrecordings.
One of Japan’s most exciting young talents, this expertly crafted EP on UNER‘s imprint is a fine example of what this incredible artist is all about, and why he is drawing attention from all four corners of the world.
Today we are premiering the title and first track from the release. “Melt Light” has an uplifting vibe with soothing pads and a gentle groove powered by the bassline. Deep and atmospheric, the lead synth adds a hint of urgency with its arpeggiated melody. Finished with some cosmic sounding pads along with the delicate piano of the breakdown, this epic track is multi-layered and intelligent.
Enjoy it below, exclusively for 6AM followers and listeners. The Melt Light EP is out on December 1st 2017 and is available for pre-order via Beatport.
