repress in generic white cover , earl has been with us since the beginning. the c in c.r.s.t. from some of our earliest releases to the spanking goodfoot ep as chesus and more recently his twisted disco remix of daneekas what s it gonna be? with seven davis jr. as earl jeffers he s really found his sound and we are stoked to have him back on board with his best ep yet. these tunes have been flaming all year in the clubs. proper essential stuff.
hot on the heels of both save me and the robert owens collab is the third instalment of the walk.man series. big wide-eyed club womper better dayz on the a and the subtler soul rolla stay away from music on the flip. these go off. the walk.man mixtape will be released in full on cassette and digital at the end of the summer

mysteries. adventures in paradise. in a world where we got it all clear and cut. it pays to see between the lines this track first caught our attention in the series of yen parties we did last year across europe, and every time this tune got the id treatment. he followed it up quickly with the soul burning joonya. both tracks are beasts in the club, and we hope you feel them too.
ten thousand yen is very proud to announce a new signing - rimbaudian, with this stunner of an ep. we first met him at our party in nitsa, barcelona last summer. we loved his meda fury debut and asked if he’d send some tunes our way. by the time we got home, there was a new folder waiting with about 40 tracks from rimbaudian and a certain dj seinfeld. just about every single one was great, a feat we can assure you never happens. this is easily some of our favourite music right now, and we’re stoked to share it with you!
having dropped some of our favourites from the last year on labels like mr saturday night and autonomous africa, we are very happy to welcome these guys to the ten thousand yen family. weird, trippy rhythms, space echoes and chaos held together with hard percussive sound. so sick.
in the lead up to his debut solo album the ten thousand yen label boss returns home with four essential cuts, with two vocal features from la s seven davis jr. the ep is led by what s it gonna be? which is already picking up early love in the clubs and on radio by the likes of annie mac & skream. from the disco-charged drive of together to house/acid/techno morph ghost text to the r&b lean of i promise , the from mine to mistress ep is a diverse collection of tunes that really show off daneeka s varied production style.
xxxy returns to ten thousand yen with a pair of cybertron futureproof rave burners. goldfish exists to pull you in, mangle you up and squash you out the other side. the flip evade is on a hands in the air, vapour jets in amnesia flex. we love em both. a lot. hope you do too x.
quick-firing into the new year, doc daneekas ten thousand yen returns with the absolute dance heat that is bodhi, *i need you e.p.*. the pair rose to prominence over the last two years with deft mixes for people like the xx & sampha and london grammer. releasing original material via channels like grizzly and australias future classic, bodhi join forces with their welsh compatriots at ten thousand yen for these collection of rough and ready, yet soul burning dance floor bombs. these have been doing serious business in the clubs. i need you!

ushering in a big new year for doc daneekas ten thousand yen is one of the most exciting underground artists to emerge over the last few years. combining a bruk shuffle with a natural flare for techno, presk has been carving out his own subtle niche since 2011. each track on this release stands tall alone, showcasing presks natural leanings, from the raw broken funk hit of *saluki*, the warped techno of *mod1 & rais* to the deft touch of *vigor*. this is presk at his very best, showing whats to come of this exciting producer and marking a very fitting return to the label. with support already from gilles peterson and a prime slot on jackmasters soon-to-become-legendary mastermix 4, saluki is set to be around for a while. don t sleep on this one.
includes immediate download of 4-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (mp3, flac, and more).
i made another record for the lovely welshmen at ten thousand yen. the a side is an arpy thing with bass the flip is a vocally thing with bass. they both contain breakdowns - please dont hold this against me xoxo
chesus, c from c.r.s.t., half of darkhouse fam and the one and only metabeats fresh from his recent hip hop smash >hookers< with action bronson. so apart from having a finger in just about every conceivable pie, chesus is going back to his house roots on this solo project, which features the local talents, also making a fair name for themselves, the organ grinder and didz. this is an e.p. of classic house smashers, harking back to the house heyday of the 90s but with a production twist from 2012.
code for free mp3 download of these tracks included.
ten thousand yen is proud to present our new signing: presk. he weighs in with the sublime 4 track love again e.p. as the first ever 12 inch on tty. we first came across presk in eindhoven last year playing support for doc daneeka. he played a set of straight original material and tore the place down. since then we have heckled and begged until he finally signed his life away to us, and now that we own his soul we plan on sharing it with you. this e.p. comes correct for 2011 - with some of the most relevant dance music around right now, in our humble opinion. sharp edged rhythmic dance music with a distinctly techno lean - we really love the tunes and are super excited about this release, hope you are feeling them too.
comes with code for free digital download of this release.
