Abakus- ‘Tokyo Express’ EP OUT NOW! Get It Here!
We shamefully overslept on some really great news folks, but this should make a lot of people happy. Abakus released a TON of new music since February, including two DJ mixes, and the new EP ‘Tokyo Express’, which was just released this month on Modus Records! We happily present to you (with our tails between our legs) two new mixes for free download, as well his first studio compilation since the ‘The World of Silent Geometry’, released early April of last year. Grab them below, and check out the new EP!
London’s super-producer Russ Davies, the man behind the Abakus/Cinnamon Chasers monikers, seems to be back at it ladies and frogs. If that is so, then we can likely expect some more releases this spring and summer season. Russ has an absolutely fierce work ethic. Between making music as CC and Abakus, and consistently producing back to back to back (and more) albums for both solo projects, one wouldn’t be foolish to think he lived in that London studio. Up until a brief hiatus which has just been broken, he is one of the hardest working musicians in the industry. His son, whom he somehow manages to father full-time, has got some big shoes to fill.
‘Tokyo Express’ showcases 5 new original productions, including a dub version of the hit Cinnamon Chasers tune, “Lights”. In his last album, Abakus started to take his style into a much more ambient stage. The ultra bright, bass-heavy house sound that we found in previous albums like ‘Prisms’ or ‘Futurism’ was fading into a down tempo format. ‘Tokyo Express’ meets somewhere in the middle of that transition. The compositions are more aesthetically oriented, but there is a strong push behind them. The techy, acid house influence is still noticeable, and his skills as a sound engineer haven’t been altered in the slightest. The full release is available on JunoDownload now, preview/purchase it below!
