Marika Takeuchi's new age music is some of the most beautiful one I'm aware of. I just love her emotionally intense piano play, and the way she adds synths to augment the piano sound to the max.
Favorite track: First Light.
Following on from the success of her recent EP Daydream, Marika returns with a new EP which focuses on her continued search for that elusive something. 'Missing Piece' sees Marika returning to her signature sound of piano, strings, synths and bubbling beats that evoke feelings and images reminiscent of early Ryuichi Sakamoto and Joe Hisaishi filtered through the lens of contemporary America.
The first single 'Missing Piece' releases on April 24th.
