Itokim - Baby Moon [Fine Art]

I’m very proud to announce a Japanese deep house prodigy called Itokim.

His debut EP on Fine Art Records, "Baby Moon" is due for release on 15th February. This is a digital only release. Baby Moon is a deep techno track that evokes feelings of late nineties IDM. On the flip side is Glittering Way, is the dancefloor track that is sure to get you moving.

Check out the official Itokim MySpace, where you can hear new tracks, and for more information, please visit the Fine Art Records web site.

I really like Baby Moon, it’s the perfect opening track for me. I like how it changes up. I will be opening up a few set’s with this one.Santiago Salazar

baby moon is the pick of this package for me. deep space techno, very original sounding with influences of eastern asia. quality music and ill be playing this for my interstate 94 radio show without doubt.Lee Holman

itokim deliver here a great piece of techy house music with real detroit influence. Babymmon is a long travel through the space, deep & soulful. there is a lot of sensuality in this track. Glittering way is more groovy. The rhodes gimmick & the keybords lines are really good. The galaxy to galaxy strings shots style and the detroit drums bring a quiet force to the track. My favourite on the ep. A first promising release from itokim that i recommend to all real melodic music lover. Another very good (true) release for fine art recordings.Pedro Cali

After the success of Basic Unit’s ‘Fedass’ EP, Fine Art look to the east, Japan specifically, to consolidate their success. ‘Baby Moon’ is a deep, warm, analogous composition that begs to be played on a big system, having said that it’s just as likely to make you curl up in a crepuscular ball as make you dance. ‘Glittering Way’ is a subtle percussive journey lit up along the way by lightness-of-touch synth stabs. A sophisticated release which, for me at least, reminds me of some of Ferox’s more melodic moments.Paul Corey (Machines Are Funky)

Fine Art has already set up a strong track record with releases from the likes of Wink and Cattaneo. Next move is the debut release from Japan’s Itokim and very impressive it is too. The title cut is spaced and atmospheric with glistening textures and evocative melodic touches. Halfway, a ghostly new riff appears opening up another field for all the elements to play in. ‘Glittering Way’ is an electro-tinged space-shuffle which again works in subtle melodies and tweakings to create a deep, soulful mood. Fantastic debut, look forward to more from this name. 5 out of 5Kris Needs (DMC Update)

The work of new Japanese producer Itokim, ‘Baby Moon’ is a sleek yet rhythmically busy take on deep Detroit techno, and ‘Glittering Way’ although based on a breakbeat, still packs a powerful punch. 4 out of 5Richard Brophy (DJmag)

Finally, Itokim and I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who have been sending us excellent feedback. :-)))
