We did a songwriting session with GORO and we came up with a lot of great ideas. With this set of songs, we wanted to capture the feeling of the ocean, looking at the water horizon, and pay our tribute & respect to it.

Release Schedule: Jan 17th - "A Quiet Storm"
Feb 14th - "Promise"
Mar 6th - Seawater EP
Genres: Beats, Lofi, Jazz

Renowned Japanese guitarist Kazuki Isogai returns to Stereofox for his 9th release, this time in collaboration with GORO KUMAI – an outstanding MPC player, DJ & beatmaker.

Seawater EP is a collection of 5 songs, paying tribute to the ocean – for all its beauty & danger, for giving us life but also being the powerful element it is.

Kazuki’s music always has a delightful jazz touch, thanks to his guitars but in Seawater EP it takes a more boom-bap turn, courtesy of GORO’s raw, old-school beatmaking & sampling – especially found in the single “A Quiet Storm”, and in “Vida” & “Choose You”.
