Video Premiere: Kashiwa Daisuke – Deepblue (Slowmix)

Kashiwa Daisuke - Deepblue

Japanese artist/composer/remixer Kashiwa Daisuke has been exploring post-rock since his stint as a member of Yodaka. Since 2004 the Tokyo-based Daisuke has been taking his musical aspirations further as a solo artist by experimenting with electronic music and beyond.

This month sees Daisuke release his three-track april​.​#02 Live via Subcontinental Records.

We’re pleased to world premiere the music video for “Deepblue (Slowmix)” directed by Sharath U Holla.

What’s immediately striking about the video is that it was filmed around New York City before the COVID-19 pandemic reared its ugly head.

Over Daisuke’s heartfelt composition comprised of gentle piano and tender strings mundane parts of New York life – a squirrel jetting up a tree in the park, a subway train pulling into a station or street performers playing music – unintentionally take on a new meaning of a collective life once lived.
