On Friday March 4th, we are pleased to announce the Braza debut of critically acclaimed DJ and producer Yosaku who will be dropping a twisted selection of Brazilian-infused beats, playing an enhanced live set with the aid of his electronic toys! Yosaku is a California native who dropped his first release in 2006, a scorching remix of Ray Barretto's cover of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise". The aptly titled "Future Paradise" s...uccessfully blended elements of House, Latin, Funk, and Broken Beat, and garnered praise from the world's best DJs and producers including Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Kenny Dope, Rich Medina, and Quantic. Yosaku has never looked back since: remixing the Godfather of Soul, James Brown on GAMM, producing smashing re-edits for Arision, flipping Brazilian nuggets on the "Virtual Brasil" EP for Bstrd Boots, collaborating with DJ Day on various dancefloor burners,and mashing it up with Bobbito on Alala Records. Recently, he also released his full length compilation album "Rehashed" on the Japanese Milkdipper label. This is going to be a a very special night, so don't sleep!
