Big In Japan is a brand new project that aims to shed light on incredible talent and flourishing, but under-represented, musical cultures. Formerly of UK beat legends Ninja Tune, Seb Jenkins and Liam Nolan have worked in different sides of the industry, from management to festivals to labels. Having re-connected after 13 years, they merged their musical tastes from their new found homes (Bogota and Berlin respectively) and they decided to team up: Big In Japan was born. They kickstart the label with a set of records from Colombia: presenting native duo Cero39. Their productions meld influences from Latin pop culture, indie reggaeton, hip hop and dembow along with the flavour of 'everyday Caribbean life'. Widely regarded as one of Colombia's best producers of the moment, they have a dedicated following in South America and now Big In Japan want to spread their sounds further afield. Mis Tierras Calientes is a 5 track EP and a journey through sounds and regions of their nation using a combination of synths, live instruments and polyrhythmic drum structures throughout the tracks. It captures the eclectic and free-spirited sounds of Colombia and the vibe of Big In Japan making for a solid introduction for a definite label to watch.
