“This EP is inspired by those lazy days spent relaxing or unwinding at a personal happy place, which is especially important during the difficult times we live in.
Whether it’s a balcony, a front porch, or at the beach, this release is about representing the comfort of those places and their healing effect. Sonically, balcony is part of my journey experimenting with introducing more electronic influences into my beats.”

Even though kyoshi is at the beginnning of his career (with his very first release in July 2021 with Stereofox), his debut haven EP impressed curators in the beat space from its very first chord.
Pulsing synths, meant to sync with your heartbeat in those precious moments of calmness – this is balcony EP.
After his debut with Stereofox Records called haven EP, Vancouver-based producer kyoshi is back with yet another 4-tracker, taking the concepts of the previous release to another level. The importance of having a place that connects you with the outside world, in times where we’ve never felt so disconnected, shines through on these mellow tracks. By looking at the balcony as the border between inside and outside – the two spaces we’ve started to distinguish ever so clearly – kyoshi hopes to inspire coping with the struggle in a healthy positive way.
The focus track “far away” embodies this optimism by closing the EP on a bright note. Gentle keys and soft drums will help you unwind, while the depth of the soundscapes will let you explore the beauty of the after-work hours in a musical form.
