Congrats @Prettybwoy’s ! Parallel Lives is featured on Bandcamp Daily – Best New Electronic Music on Bandcamp: November 2018.

Nobuto Hanawa from Tokyo is quite one of the greatest producers using the rhythms and sound palettes of grime as a jump-off point. The clicks, chimes, and gliding tones in his songs are as precise as the most art gallery-oriented electronic experimenters, yet the physical impact and sense of big city drama in his structures and rhythms show he hasn’t lost sight of grime’s creative crucible in turn-of-the-millennium London. Here he’s returned to the French POLAAR label, who released his first EP in 2016, and delivered three tracks that rank among his very best. It’s sometimes scary, sometimes heart-stoppingly beautiful, but always utterly essential.




Another good review from

Just as skippy and adventurous is Prettybwoy ’s latest effort, which came out this month through POLAAR . The Japanese producer has long asserted his own take on grime, using urban percussion works and fragmented structures to develop his reconstructed sound. As such, Parallel Lives , sounds like a perfect follow-up to 2016’s Overflow, but it does take this sound further and may well be Prettybwoy’s best release yet. This is grime and breaks read through the artist’s own prism, where fractured beats underline ambient textures, and melancholy tunes emerge from the void. A rewarding listen as a whole
