Hamsa Remix Out Now

I have done this remix two years ago during the winter lockdown, which was the strangest and the darkest time of whole life period, and finally it’s out now. Sandman Project’s Hamsa is a superb mid eastern jazz funk tune that I transformed into the deep mid tempo house track. Thanks for DJ Kobayashi to hook me up for this project that there are another wicked reworks from Emanative feat Jessica Lauren, Woxow and Ayala as well.


Afrobuddha reissue

One of my project with my fellow DJ/producer Kay Suzuki, the Afrobuddha‘s most wanted vinyl have been reissued by Misticisms. The original presses are unbelievably expensive on Discogs so that you should get your copy before it’s run out of stocks.
