Aiming to create a sense of tranquility through house, samples, jazz, and flute.

Foodman, aka Takahide Higuchi, is releasing a new album called Yasuragi Land, via Hyperdub this July.

For the album, Higuchi took inspiration from eating at motorway service stations in Japan, as well as the country’s public baths.

“I wanted to create an honest album that combines the sound of guitar and percussion with the sense of peace and community I feel in here amidst the uncertainty of the future.”

In doing so, Higuchi brings together elements of jazz, house, footwork, wooden flutes, and guitar VSTs.

Yasuragi Land follows his Dokutsu EP, last year on Highball.
