Yu Miyashita, who also goes by the name Yaporigami, is a musician shamefully under-appreciated. In July, I found myself blown away by his brilliant new track ‘#001’, with its mysterious backdrop and seductive groove. His blend of glitchy, jarring industrial noises will make your head spin, but behind the sheer power of his sound, there is hidden depth and subtlety, available only to those who listen closely.

Earlier this week, we caught up with Miyashita to talk music, film and how different locations influence our taste. We were also very lucky to receive a guest mix from the man, which meanders from post-rock ambience, to Wagnerian crescendos, and loops of paranoid mutterings.
