“All of our daily lives are made up of a combination of contrasting elements. Good & bad, black & white. Equilibrium EP is about the duality of the world and about the balance between nature and technology.

[ Release Info ]
Following his successful collab album with edbl (10+ editorials & 1М+ streams), Kazuki Isogai is back with his 7th release with Stereofox, with frequent collaborator yuhei miura – often called one of the most exciting Japanese producers since Nujabes.

Equilibrium EP explores topics like duality & the balance between nature & technology – continuing the theme of Nature City EP.

The first single “Sun Flares” (added to State of Jazz & All New Jazz, plus numerous curators’ support in the 1st week) is reminiscent of the beloved “Worldwide” – a summery gem with playful guitars and bright synths over rich percussion grooves.

The focus track of the EP – “Daygrooves”, is one of the most feel-good lofi beats pieces you’ve heard, and the title track “Equilibrium (Just To See You)” will simultaneously melt & uplift you – a heartwarming blend of slick guitars, chill beats & hazy vocal samples. The opening song “Fight or Flight?” gets its title from the response of the body to either confront or run in a case of danger – another interpretation of black & white and duality. And “Virtual Reality” serves as the perfect closure of the 5-track project, a reminder of the toll technology takes on our society.
