Shuya Okino works remix magic into Eddy Ramich & Roman Rauch's 'Dayglow'

Kyoto Jazz Massive co-founder and all-round hero of the Japanese dance underground, Shuya Okino, remixes the latest offering on Sonar Kollektiv – working his sunshine magic into 'Dayglow' from Eddy Ramich & Roman Rauch.

Alongside his brother, Yoshihiro, Shuya's work with Kyoto Jazz Massive has won a throng of worldwide admirers. Having released a pair of critically-acclaimed albums as well as scores of pristine singles, they count Gilles Peterson among the most fervent fans of their jazz-soaked deep house grooves. Aside from this, Shuya has been embedded in the eclectic Japanese underground for decades, performing as a DJ from as far back as the late '80s, and more recently running seminal Shibuya-based venue, The Room.

The original version of 'Dayglow' arrives from celebrated Croatian artist, Eddy Ramich, alongside Viennese producer, Roman Rauch, and British vocalist, Pete Josef. The talented trio serve a feel-good slice of club-friendly sunshine house that arrives via Jazzanova's impeccably curated label, Sonar Kollektiv. Adding trademark live instrumentation to the cut, Shuya Okino brings a delightful looseness of feel to his rework, with floating Rhodes, free-flowing bass and sumptuous guitar licks caressing the heartfelt vocal as splashing drums power the percussion-rich groove.
