Lycoriscoris “Chiyu”

Mesmerizing melodic deep house producer Lycoriscoris is sharing the title track of his most recent album, Chiyu, released on the 27th of March via Anjunadeep. With his captivating sound, Lycoriscoris has been recognized as a rising name by the likes of Nick Warren, Joris Voorn, Hernan Cattaneo, Michael Mayer, and Eelke Kleijn in the DJ Promo Reports. In the written world, publications such as Vice, Flaunt Mag, DJ Mag,

This Song Is Sick, Magnetic Magazine, EDM Identity, Atwood Magazine, Mixmag Asia, Dummy Mag and Electronic Groove have celebrated his work while BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart, KEXP, NTS Radio, DJ Koze and &ME have provided further support on the airwaves.

Born and based in Japan, Yunosuke Senoo continues his artistic passion in the world of photography, exploring his local countryside with a lens on a regular basis. Lycoriscoris finds inspiration in numerous artists including Radiohead, Boards of Canada, Nils Frahm and Helios, to name a few. His own sound calls to mind the likes of Christian Loffler, Ben Bohmer, Lane 8 and Yotto.

Reverberating tones echo back and forth within ‘Chiyu’, creating a magnetic blank space within the mind, drawing you in and instilling peace from turbulent thoughts. It’s here, as organic elements meet rolling rhythms, that the truth is found: unwanting and undemanding but inescapable nonetheless. Lycoriscoris both reveals and heals: an imitate reflection of the importance of music and the role it can play in the world.

Speaking of the LP, Lycoriscoris tells us: “To be honest, I don’t want to give away the image of the song by the title, but the meaning of the title of this album is “recovery” or “healing” in Japanese. For some problems in life, we will eventually recover, but it’s not easy. I wanted to portray that process. I chose Japanese as the title because it is the language I am most familiar with. I think I’m implicitly seeking sympathy, so if I can “recover” with this album, I think it will have the same effect if someone sympathizes with me.
