Thousand Knives EP out now!

Released on 2nd April 2010 on Primaudial Records...
Taking inspiration from the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ski kicks off 2010 with an EP of electronic soundscapes centered around his interpretation of the classic 'Thousand Knives'. Featuring the guitar talents of Jeremy Shaw (Naked Funk, Daddy Long Legs), this track first appeared on Sakamoto's 1978 solo album, and was later recorded by his band Yellow Magic Orchestra. Continuing the Japanese thread, Ski was lucky enough to have Tokyo's very own mu-seum club residents Akio Dobashi aka Crude Reality and Terry Washizu intensify the groove with some slamming remixes.
