Tokyo Bliss is back for its 19th exploration into the trance and progressive scene through the eyes of Japan’s leading label in the space. Otographic Music label head Kenji Sekiguchi is the man behind this mix in this month’s edition and he’s got a pack of soothing grooves to lay down on your ears. The mix showcases some amazing new tracks emerging from labels such as Arrival, Silk Digital, and CDR, starting with Starbox by FLOWNIC–a gentle track with an addictive melody, bells, and all around feel-good vibe. It’s easy to find yourself effortlessly drifting away into the majesty of Kenji’s musical transmission, which is perhaps why he chose the awakening vocals of Imogen Heap to lift us to consciousness just before saying goodbye. Prepare for bliss!
Otographic Music has quite a lot to be proud of these days, most notably with the recent release of Nhato’s debut album, Etude, which has been receiving serious traction in the DJ community from the likes of W&W, Armin van Buuren, and other trance titans. We have a feeling this is just the beginning for our special partner label.
