Black Acre artist Jun Kamoda delivers ‘Escape The Night’, a two-track sample-based house single released in July via his own Jun Records.

Kamoda’s carefree attitude to genre conventions and sampling has made for unique listening in recent years, something heavily informed by his past as leftfield hip hop act MC Illreme. Here, ‘Escape The Night’ is gloriously upbeat tonic with a heavily swung groove, staccato synth funk-bass and breezy chords providing the backdrop to a vocal taken from City Pop singer Hitomitoi ’The Night’.

On the flip, Kamoda twists Japanese funk band Zainichi Funk’s infectious ‘Bakudan Kowai’ into a breaky house cut that oozes an intense, throw-down dancefloor weapon. As with the title track, Kamoda is having fun in the studio and it shines through the music.
