The Yamasaki sound is “steeped in the greats like Hancock, Coltrane and Gil Scott-Heron, they are also intrinsically linked to the lure of modern Jazz and Funk. It takes the sterling early nineties work of the Acid Jazz label and builds upon it yet again” (Robert McNamara, Redtrackmusic).

His music seamlessly blends jazz, soul, and big beat breaks into tracks that seriously make you want to get up and groove along with the beats. Save on that vacation to the Bahamas by simply buying a Yamasaki track, loading it into your iPod, throwing on your headphones, standing in a sandbox, and youll swear you were in the tropics.

Yamasaki blends the sounds of; funk, soul, big-beat, and jazz, to create his lounge trip-hop style. Any of the Yamasaki tracks could be the soundtrack to a summer vacation. Imagine a consistently lounge sounding version of Fat Boy Slim, but signed to Ninja Tune, then you might be somewhere close to knowing what Yamasaki sounds like. (just like music)
