I C H I S A N – S A V A N N A M I X T A P E (NEW!)
Mondays inherently fall victim to a bad reputation, but it’s not the calendar’s fault. It’s not even your boss’ fault. It’s really up to us to set the pace we want for the week. Traffic will always be there, the bus will always be late, and your back bike tire will always be flat. Instead of quoting Office Space and drowning yourself in political memes, use this as an opportunity to build your momentum for the workweek. It’s all perspective fam. So here are five tracks to get your auto-pilot lubed up before the weekend makes it’s way back.
I C H I S A N – S A V A N N A M I X T A P E (NEW!)
Our man Ichisan steps up again- This artist simply doesn’t quit. It seems like he’s always in the studio working up some interstellar magic. Check out this exclusive podcast he did for the Slovenian record label/festival-combo Stiropor! It’s good to know his community appreciates him as much as ours, as that’s not always the case with some artists. Press play and do your thing folks, the download is FREE!
Is there such a thing as too much synth? Let’s assume not and move forward. The Russian synth-masters D-Pulse recently got some remix attention from their neighboring space wizard Ichisan! His new ‘Remember To Save’ remix of their single “More” will appear on the upcoming We Are Five compilation from Nang Records, due for release this coming Monday. You can preview the new track now!
America has House music, and Moscow has analog synthesizers. It’s been that way since the 80’s. While Derrick Carter and Larry Heard were making history in Chicago and Detroit clubs, underground gems like Zodiac and NSRD helped create a new of music that would soon influence artists across the world. With the stark evolution of technology, those two forces inevitably came together as one, helping to shape the various blends of Disco-House and Space Disco that we cherish so much today. History is the future, and the future is history ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the tune…
To celebrate the official launch of House of Acid_Reviews, we’ve asked Ichisan to sit in for an exclusive mixtape! You can listen to the brand new ‘Poker Mix’ on our Mixcloud page below! In the last week alone this artist culminated a tour of the West Coast, flew back home to Slovenia, released a separate mix just a few days ago, and found the time to record this. Needless to say we’re very excited. He’s not one to disappoint.
The music of Ichisan has many dimensions, many of which are displayed wonderfully in this new mix. Not only does this artist breathe new life into European space disco, he creates new life within it. His funky discography is just an anecdote in the grand scheme of his potential. Rather than succumb to limitation, Ichisan has dug a passage through the boundaries of his influences and traveled to worlds we never knew to exist. The dancing rhythms he implements don’t define his music. No, they’re more like the colors and textures a painter would use to create a bigger, more beautiful picture. They’re the rock hammer he uses to slowly break free from the prisons of musical confinement. He has said in the past that his mixes are more for listening experiences than anything else. In the end they become much more than that. Each new installment is a view into a new world, a new chapter in his own musical journey. That kind of raw depth is exactly what the electronic universe needs, and we welcome his innovation with open arms.

Were you starting to wonder where all the world’s cosmic tuneage went? Maybe just a little? Well put on your helmets, strap yourselves in, and say goodbye to gravity folks. It’s time for a brand new release from Ichisan. You may swoon accordingly.
Earlier in the year he told us he’d be doing a couple of releases as a precursor to his debut album (which is still in the works). This summer he gave fans a taste of his Extra Ball EP, due on Catune Records this fall. Now, a man of his word, here is a preview of the ‘Kristina’ EP, his second installment of space-laced dance tunes! The Kristina collection is set to drop September 15th on Internasjonal Records and includes two new originals. Despite it’s short length, the EP ranges from the soothing psychedelic overtones one might hear in his mixes, to the more dance-fueled guilty pleasures we hear at his shows. Both tracks showcase a more upbeat and raw sound this time around, an atmospheric result of his synthesizer collection no doubt. Read a full review and preview both tracks below! Space disco, we’ve missed you dearly. Read the rest of this entry
