ANCHORSONG Mawa EP release party
PUZZLE MAN (LIVE)
本名叫吉田雅昭的Anchorsong來自日本，在2007年移居至歐洲，年輕的他已有與Bonobo, Prefuse 73, DJ Krush, Daedelus, Jaga Jazzist同台演出的經驗，於2009年SXSW的表演更是大受好評與注目，也曾經數次登上指標級的BBC Radio 1。
在日本發行過三張成功的單曲後，2011年Anchorsong於Case Study的首張全球發行的"The Lost & Found EP"，更於2011年底在Tru Thoughts Recordings下發行個人專輯"Chapters"，這些作品的成功的將他帶上了SonarSound，Outlook Festival和Boiler Room等國際舞台，充滿濳力的Anchorsong是個被多方看好的新興製作人，2014三月Anchorsong被節拍大廠BBE Recordings簽了下來，並在2014八月發行最新單曲"Mawa EP"。
Anchorsong ‒ aka Masaaki Yoshida - has become globally recognised for his unique live shows, which many people have described as "like watching a painter drawing on a white canvas", as he creates electronic music completely live using a sampler (MPC2500) and a keyboard, right in front of the audience. While he mainly performs solo, he frequently augments this setup with a string quartet, for a truly spellbinding show.
Since his relocation from Tokyo to Europe in late 2007, Anchorsong has supported the likes of Bonobo, Prefuse 73, DJ Krush, Daedelus, Jaga Jazzist and more. He has garnered an international following on YouTube, with videos of his performance.
After wowing the crowds at SXSW 2009, he found himself the subject of a new level of attention, going on to make several appearances on BBC Radio 1, with radio play from Rob Da Bank and a live Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens' In New Music We Trust show in early 2010.
Having put out three successful EPs in Japan, all of which were released as double packs containing a CD and a live DVD, Anchorsong's international debut, "The Lost & Found EP" was released on 28th March 2011 on his own label, Case Study.
In November 2011, his highly anticipated debut album, 'Chapters' was released worldwide on Tru Thoughts Recordings. It received the likes of tastemakers including Gilles Peterson, Huw Stephens, John Kennedy (XFM), Oneman and Laurent Garnier. The 1st single "Plum Rain" became an instant classic and stayed in Top 40 of The Hype Machine for a week. He kept himself busy touring in 2012 including the appearance on SonarSound Tokyo'12, Outlook Festival and Boiler Room.
After having spent more than 5 years in London, he relocated to Tokyo in June 2013.
In March 2014, he signed to BBE Recordings as his new home. His debut on the label "Mawa EP" is released om 18th August.
