Originally from Tokyo, and now based in London, Anchorsong is a highly-fêted producer and solo live act. He has become globally recognized for his unique live shows, which many people have described as “like watching a painter drawing on a white canvas”, as he creates electronic music completely live using a sampler (MPC2500) and a keyboard, right in front of the audience. While he mainly performs solo, he frequently augments this setup with a string quartet, for a truly spellbinding show. It led him to take in stages at famed festivals including Glastonbury, Wilderness, Further Future, Outlook Croatia, SonarSound Tokyo, Mutek Montreal and SxSW.
Anchorsong is now set to release his third full LP ‘Cohesion’ on Tru Thoughts. His latest offering takes inspiration from ‘70s and ‘80s Bollywood film soundtracks and traditional Indian percussion, to create a psychedelic, danceable and free-spirited listen that blurs the boundary between rhythm and melody.
