Shifting Gears is the new project of Tokyo-based producer Hosina Anniversary. He has risen to particular prominence in recent years with his self-titled brand of ‘Watechno’. Stylistically fusing traditional Japanese instrumentation with Chicago and Detroit sensibilities, his works have found homes on ESP Institute, Young Marco’s Safe Trip and Amsterdam-based MUSAR Recordings.
Evil is the new EP which is out now via MUSAR. The new moniker focuses heavily on principles of Jazz and raw musicianship, with a continued exploration of machine-reared club sounds. Listen below.
