Coming off a month that has seen venues in London, Brighton and Edinburgh sold out with audiences eager to experience his spellbinding live show, join Masaaki Yoshida, aka Anchorsong as he plays his biggest headline show to date at East London’s XOYO! His remarkable performances are an awe-inspiring showcase of improvisation, conveyed effortlessly with a soulful warmth most acoustic acts strive for and a sense of spectacle rarely achieved in live electronic music.
Masaaki Yoshida’s minimalist, analogue treatment belongs more to the MPC-era of 1980s and 90s hip hop and the days of early house than to the overproduced digitalism that dominates today. His creative process lends itself handily to the live act: he has stated that the concept of his performances is “to show the process of making music itself…to prove that the live show of electronic music is as exciting as one by a band.” Justly, his shows have been described as akin to “watching a painter draw on a white canvas.”
Plus the quality of supports you have come to expect from a Soundcrash show.
