Bullet Train step up for our latest mix, as the label curated by Rinse FM’s Marco Del Horno send for young gun producer Last Japan to pull together a mix of grimey, 2-step inflected bass pressure.
The past 12 months have seen the Guildford-based Last Japan AKA Marco Giuliani garner Radio 1 airplay with his ‘Big Man’ track from summer 2010, release a steady stream of tracks through Bullet Train and Southern Fried, and see his brand of electroid bass roll through clubs nationwide. Recently collaborating with former Roll Deep legend Trim for the creeping ‘Blood Diamond’ EP, Last Japan is quite obviously a young talent to keep an eye on.
Pulling for the likes of Bok Bok, Joy Orbison, Kingdom, Redlight and Pearson Sound for his Hyp mix, Hyp 037 is a hyperactive slice of the current scene – as the man himself said: “I think from listening to this mix you’ll hear that’s it all sub bass driven music but its got some melody and musicality to it and think thats important, because there’s a lot of boring music out there at the moment. They’re also all tracks I draw influences from as well all types of music no matter its genre”. Enjoy.
