about

Whispers from An Angel is the second release on First Word Records from Japanese producer Yosi Horikawa. After the delicate instrumental electronica of debut EP 'Wandering' this release sees a collaboration with fellow Red Bull Music Academy alumni Grayson Gilmour, Anenon & Jesse Boykins III. Originally recorded at Red Bull's studios in Madrid, the track remained unfinished for almost a year. It was too good to stay incomplete however and is the perfect release ahead of Yosi's debut album in 2013.

Yosi's idiosyncratic production style is the ideal counterpoint to Jesse's soulful vocals and some subtle keyboard work from Grayson. With the addition of a tasteful saxophone solo from Anenon this is a track that is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word. On the b-side is the instrumental 'Dots' - another intricate Yosi rhythm, with layer upon layer of strange pops and crackles slowly building into a trademark off-kilter beat. The release is topped off with a remix from Anenon of the title track adding a brooding build and a more club-friendly beat - effortlessly taking the track into a new dimension. The lead track is also available on a limited edition 7" featuring 'Bubbles' from the debut EP on the flip.
