which hail from the land of the rising sun ; Japan. This mix of hand selected tunes has been curated
by, and mixed by, Pineapple Digital Label Director Dave Pineda and we’re going big with this release!
Typical of PD fashion, where we prize unique deep house vibes and chilled ambiance, IZUMI AUDIO’s
“Arch De Lune” is a perfect platform for opening with its goosebump causing, funky, square melody.
Perfect for a meeting with Clean Tears’ “Magnolia”, which also evokes a similar feeling. As
“Arch De Lune” seems almost the perfect fit to meet with “Magnolia”‘s driving dance beat and
tribal drum influence.
Overwhelming euphoria follows with “Weine” from Puru. An electrifying execution of many elements
that bring your spirits higher and higher.
Tomoyuki Sakakida’s “Astronimical” is where things really start to pick up and get exciting.
Galloping bass lines meet with incredible driving riffs those interstellar nights driving through
the journey of life. This one is a real trancer.
Warm bells fill the space that the breakdown provides in Crydits’ “Once Again”-an angelic-like beat
full of the innocence of each new spring season, right in time with the Northern Hemisphere. A nice
transition bridges us to Yasuha’s “Stella”, with a gentle beat that comforts with a warm blanket of
sounds sparking feelings of closure and contentment.
As we continue to bridge the climax of Melodic Journeys Japan ahead, things heat up once more in “Aqua”
by Koki Kunitake; drops of vocal chops and samples envelop the soul in an embrace that could only deliver
us to the insane heights of the fun and bright breakdown.
Nhato returns to Pineapple Digital, almost exactly 3 years on the day, with “Hopeful Imitations”. As is
typical in Nhato fashion, this track is everything you expect from the producers signature sound and style.
“Hopeful Imitations” is what making complex melodies, banging drum and chord progression a seemingly
perfunctory task. A wild and epic melodic journey from Japan sure to excite the ears and inspire
An epic and beautiful peak energy track Dachs’ “Fiore Blue” keeps in time and energy with our
former trackーone with nostalgic touches of orchestrated trance elements, fluid arpeggios, and killer main
line synths that rip through this timeless classic.
Our very special vocal release is done by none other than Miwa and Genesis 12. In “Only One”, a cool square melody plops
along an over the top of chiptune-esque support on this poppy upbeat daytime festival worthy track.
Stay tuned for Part 3!
