MIMS Guest Mix: Koichi Sakai (London / Tokyo, Olindo Records)

Electronic Worldwide Sounds

“This is a strictly vinyl-only mix of deep afro latin house and disco that you can relax to as much as dance to. I love percussive and jazzy music and always try to mix smoothly so the blends flow like a river. Hope you feel the vibe too.”

London-based producer and DJ Koichi Sakai is a well-known head in London music circles thanks to his role in co-founding the legendary Afrobeat Vibration nights alongside Dele Sosimi. In collaboration with Ghanaian percussionist and singer Afla Sackey (Afrik Bawantu), this project sees Koichi mixing African percussion instruments and themes with synths and drum machines.

Koichi Sakai just released his debut collaborative album with singer, multi-instrumentalist and master percussionist Afla Sackey.
