Japanese Jazz Hop virtuoso Uyama Hiroto is about to drop his second vinyl release on the fledgling boutique label Roph Recordings. The frequent Nujabes collaborator returns with an extended take of his previous track “One Day” as well as a vinyl exclusive B-side titled “In The Sea”, inspired by his time growing up near the ocean.
The A-side, “One Day”, of this limited edition vinyl single also serves as the very first glimpse of Uyama Hiroto’s long anticipated second solo LP Freedom of the Sun which should be scheduled for release later this year. Heavily influenced by the beauty of nature, Hiroto transcribes the complexity of the human experience through the medium of instrumental hip hop in a manner unequaled among his peers. Acting as musical architect, Uyama Hiroto brings physical form to emotions through sound organized into ultra refined jazz stylings.
