Representing Tohoku, the northeast of Japan, Saturday Player Meeting, a Morioka based live band with a hint of black music groove infusing Jazz, Funk, Soul, Ska, African dropping a long anticipated split single featuring remixes from sauce81 (eglo) and MAHBIE (Jazzy Sport) on quality 7inch.
Side-A features “Coma2012” taken the bands’ 2nd album “CIRCUMNAVIGATION” remixed by highly praised producer sauce81 known for his smash hit for eglo records last year. With this remix sauce81 took a sort of downbeat approach with bouncy bassline with warm saxophone.
On flip side, Jazzy Sport signed Mahbie interprets “The Dawn Breathing” into Nu-Jazz flavoured medium number. While fully utilizing originals piano phrase Mahbie laid chunky beat with offbeat snare placing this piece somewhere between hiphop and jazz. Emotional.
