Time to take things down a few notches as we delve deep into the dreamworld of Japanese producer Daisuke Tanabe. After spending time in living and working in London, the former art student returned to Tokyo to further hone his craft. Coming from a techno/breakbeat background, Daisuke has formed a distinctive style of his own that lies somewhere within the realms of hip hop, jazz, techno, folk, jazz and ambient electronica and your mid week wind down comes courtesy of the man himself. Kick back, zone out and drift off as we enter the Slumber Session of Daisuke Tanabe.
