The history of Portuguese-Japanese relations goes back to the 16th century, when the European maritime nation made some rather futile attempts at missionising. Takumi Motokawa is a Berlin-based percussionist/pianist/composer who graduated from the New Zealand School of Music, who collaborates with Portuguese artist JEPE here. He has built a solid resume in music after much success as a solo artist releasing music on Get Physical, Brown Eyed Boyz, Beef Records and his own Blossom Kollektiv imprint. Some beautiful music to be experienced on their new collaboration the Battera EP: from the breathtaking bridging of the gap between deep house and neoclassical on "Hope", through to the deep and contemplative chill-out groove of "Wait Is Over".
