Velocity is a DJ and producer from Tokyo, who has hooked up with the legendary Makoto’s Human Elements label for the release of his new Night Owl EP.
Velocity’s history includes creating his own7NiNE Productions and resident’s slots at theinfamous Womb in the Japanese capital as part of the Zero collective. As well as the track Ladder, which was part of an album which got to No.1 in the iTunes Store Electronic genre chart in Japan and managed to enter the top 20 in the Beatport single chart, Velocity’s music has previously graced the likes of W10, Liquid Drops and Prestige, and has gained support from Commix, Marky, Bailey, Bryan G, Random Movement and more.
The third track, Fossa Magna, explores some deeper depths, beginning with an insistent key line which leads up to a stinging breakbeat and eerier dropping effects. Headnodding and involving, Fossa…sees Velocity open his inventory of different moods and emotions, whilst still keeping with the vibe of the EP. That vibe is continued on Lost Technology, a rangy, emotive effort which continues the voyage into the unknown, dancing down rabbit holes and even injecting some neurofunk into the mix. Percussion runs, creepy synths and booming basslines guide the way to ensure you don’t get completely Lost inside the Technology.
