Fresh, exciting and most definitely upcoming talent arrives to Clash Lion this June with a three track EP titled “Ambush” courtesy of Risa Taniguchi. Formerly known as DJ RS in Japan, she’s one of Tokyo’s most established underground artists. Last year, her track “What Are You Doin” on Lyase Recordings caught the attention from Maceo Plex, Daniel Avery, Charlotte De Witte and Amelie Lens.
The new EP’s title track “Ambush” is dark and distorted, with a thundering and abrasive bass presence. “Execution” is for the acid heads; its bouncing bass syncopation alongside a nastily good acid line drive the pace throughout the track. Risa’s own muffled and eerie vocals come into play with “Monica” creating intensity in the tracks delivery. Linear in its flow, it’s a perfect late night after party track. Clash Lion proving true to their ethos on delivering music with no boundaries and freedom of expression from one of Japans hottest emerging talents.
