DJ Nobu and Katsunori Sawa are releasing their first EP on Token Records together as their alias Nobusawa.

Featuring two collaborative recordings, and a pair of solo works from each artist – TOKEN91 eschews low slung, wide angle ambience in favour of a more stripped back, direct approach. Nobu’s offering ‘Peppercorns’ operates in the high frequencies, a tentatively more droning, dream-like composition in the context of Sawa’s galloping ‘Call Scope’ – which marries quick fire kicks with a heady, psychedelic lead sequence. ‘Decorative 17’, EP closer & the second of the two collaborations is an unabashed main room workout, while ‘Raspberry’ looks to warehouse spaces for inspiration – polyrhythmic drum machine programming buoys a warping lead synth line that binds the piece, whilst remaining untethered and wholly adventurous.

It’s a powerful debut for both artists that speaks volumes on the richness of properly articulated & well executed collaboration. Both Nobu & Sawa’s fingerprints are all over the work, and each individual brings an undeniably different angle to the EP – but as a whole, it is the duo’s obvious, mutually respectful rapport that shines though, lifting the music far and above the sum of its parts.
