Nature carries both calmness & melancholy, it is ultimately the best place to heal yourself. This is the story we wanted to tell with this EP. It is also named after one of our favorite places in Japan, the Chichibu town & its park.

THE RELEASE

Release Schedule: June 4th - Chichibu Serenity
June 25th - You Are My Dream
July 16th - Whispers of Chichibu EP
Genres: Jazz, Lofi

Stereofox Records is delighted to welcome another Japanese collaboration, the debut joint work of 2 artists we’ve released before.

yuhei miura, often called one of Japan’s most exciting producers since Nujabes (worked with Kazuki Isogai & Refeeld), teamed up with the contemporary jazz legend, composer & keyboardist Osamu Fukuzawa (collaborated with re:plus) for a majestic 7-song project.

Whispers of Chichibu EP is inspired by the beauty & healing capabilities of nature, with a hint of melancholy. Named after the Chichibu National Park, the EP aims to make you feel like you’re surrounded by greenery, while also evoking introspection.

You’ll find yourself lost in the park’s paths, the songs’ jazzy keys, spacey synths, and dusty production. With both calm (Chichibu Serenity, Wandering Breeze) & playful (You Are My Dream, Lost on Purpose) songs, the project is a great soundtrack for relaxing & contemplation, with a much-needed hopefulness in between.
