the secret gem of space disco vibes, ichisan will be releasing his new ep via kanto records. first track of the ep, megla (the fog) is some sort of an instrument showcase by the slovenian producer, who used his analog synthesizers deftly to accompany the funk-house strumming of his bass and electric guitars, both played by the artist himself. veter (the wind) is a five-minute-long journey into the depths of unique and captivating musical mind of ichisan, daring to be simple yet invoking majestic feelings. third and fourth track of the ep, planica and yassa are more dancefloor oriented tunes that beam with positivity and energy, both have the potential to become anthems of the summer and beyond. arranged, recorder and mixed in ichisans own studio in ljubljana, the ep megla is brimmed with phenomenal beats that would not disappoint even the pickiest ears.
ichisan s 2017 aperitiv was so good that we ve decided to return for a second helping from his sumptuous album. four choice cuts have been selected and reworked with a specific instrument focus. the harpsicord version of -hotel- keeps the intoxicating melody of the original but allows beats to relax as notes shine with an incandescent brilliance. drums put their feet up for the rhodes version of -modri tunel.- deep stings and lounging lines mingle in this work of smoke swirling seduction. -kozmetika (trumpet version)- dances to a different tune. rich bass is again central but this time brash and bold brass intertwine with funk filled bars. the last waltz arrives with the piano version of -terminal e.- alluring notes ascend, rising and falling against heartwrenching guitar strings for a finale to end this ballroom inspired beauty.
high summer. sun is shining and the bordello is open to newcomers, the latest being slovenia’s ichisan. a 12” that bulldozes barriers, metamundus seamlessly slips between electro disco, braindance acid and gilded funk. writhing 303 jerks are tempered by warm-hearted key changes for the title track, patterns ducking into playful frolics and lush deeps. and this desire to toy with convention is what characterises the ep. bitter chords are sugared, machine grooves with nods to the dancefloors of the 70s, spaceflights with undertones of chicago, ichisan brings all together in a 12” that is as unique as it is addictive.
out of the depths of the cosmic pint comes a disco release from the alps of slovenia. complete with live bass guitars, sparkling arpeggios and swirling drifts of analogue equipment ichisan and nakova have constructed twoÂ beautifully stripped back tracks that chug along like a golden steam engine fueled on chanel no.5. with remixes by ruf dug and jonathan krisp.
praised by the likes of bjorn torske, pete herbert, prins thomas, lindstrom and todd terje, slovenian igor skafar aka ichisan releases new 4 track ep on the japan catune imprint. 80 disco boogie! exclusive japan import.
ichisan is slovenian igor skafar, and igors trademark sound is heavenly electronic blissed spaced out house with a sick amount of grooves layerd in. fab earlier releases on the grand airtight and unter the shade labels tell musical tales of this. and so it went that hoppsa fascinatd us yet againy with its mesmerizing 80s synth hook that you want to simply lock in and play away all day and night while kristina is an unmistakably philly affair with an edge, and edge, that means deep depth and a serious build between the woobly - and that is what we like! not being able to decide which one to favour, eventually, we released both. heres to you! kai & thomas, sept 2014
another bit of fantastic space disco by slowenian producer ichisan. comes with a acid drenched monster of a remix by off key hat and a super deep take by walter jones of dfa and westbound fame. heavy package for the open air season. summer bummer!
rare wiri strikes back with a cosmic disco travel to the end of time (and to the dancefloor too!). the crew of the starship are formed by ichisan (airtight, eskimo, solardisco), ilya santana (balihu, tirk, permanent vacation,…) and the head of rare wiri, rayko, with forthcoming releases in soundscape and eskimo. space disco vol.1 is a great compilation of tracks aimed to move your body and mind into the last frontier of the universe. get ready to be transported to our ship!
after the much-lauded altair nouveau 12 inch, released in association with dfa, solardisco returns with a fine three track ep from the slovenian boy wonder igor skafar aka ichisan. space patrol is a slice of lindstrom-inspired disco genius , robots from above nods to an italo influence while atanamamo is aimed square at the dancefloor with early support from the likes of aeroplane and pete herbert among others. with releases on eskimo, airtight and rare wiri already under his belt, a debut album (along with co-producer ule nakova) is due out early 2010 on nang, however, not before another release on airtight (with remix from bjorn torske no less), one on jisco/under the shade and a remix of legendary disco outfit space. expect to see/hear much more from ichisan in the very near future!
its time for the second airtight release from slovenian based ichisan (aka igor skafar). after some fine releases on the eskimo and solardisco labels our man is back. the cunningly titled full bet ep brings us a fine remix from his last offering on airtight as well as two new quality laden tracks.
