Coming This Summer: PLVS VLTRA (Toko Yasuda) 7” Single
Her solo album “Parthenon” will be released from Spectrum Spools/Editions Mego this June.
Scioto Records is honored to be releasing two exclusive tracks on 7” vinyl and digital download later this summer.
Yasuda drew inspiration from J Dilla and his use of an MPC sampler, Echo Park sunsets, cheese toast, and tea to compose most of the album. “I had fun making this music in my own comfort zone, in my own room…. took my time and explored and experimented a lot more than I had in the past, waking up early and just working out the music mostly on the MPC as the main component.” The result is an assault of electronic pop and sample laden hooks that is at times both light as a feather and staggering.
Yasuda now resides in a Los Angeles hilltop, where the chameleon sunsets are the endless muse in her very own brand of California sound.
You can check out the first single, “Flowers to Bees,” from her upcoming full length LP.
