After a handful of fine releases on Crosstown Rebels Gruuv, and MadTech, Yoshitoshi is excited to welcome the UK's Made By Pete to the label with his fantastic Aikido EP, which brings together heavy tribal grooves, climactic melodies, and brilliant arrangements to create an exciting mix of afro-tinged house that wouldn't sound out of place at Burning Man. The title track's conga-driven groove gives way to an enormous build that is devastating in the club; it's a textbook floor-filler. Rising star Enamour is on remix duty for this one, giving us a deep, trippy mix perfect for the afterhours crowd. The Greencoat Row continues the formula of Aikido with its layered percussion, spicing things up with a dramatic melody that creates a spacious and ethereal atmosphere. The EP is a consistent, thoughtful and breathtaking Yoshi debut from Made By Pete.
