This is my first introduction to the Tokyo based artist/producer and sound designer, Shinji Wakasa as he shares with us his brand new single, “rera.” I’m beyond thankful to have heard this ambient, minimalistic track as it features a lovely amount of textures, calming swells and playful piano melodies that instantly made me feel like I was floating.

Inspired by the nature in Nikko national park in Nikko-shi, Japan, “rera” features the Japanese instrument, Shakuhachi and takes the listeners on a relaxing escape to a beautiful place. From the peaceful atmosphere to the meditative vibes that stem from, “rera” I can only look forward to future releases by Shinji Wakasa and occupy myself with his catalogue of past tracks and albums.
