At long last Liquid Funk bring back Aotearoa’s finest creator of soulful, musical, liquid drum n bass, the legendary Tokyo Prose. Those of you that have witnessed one of Tokyo Prose’s trips to Wellington over the last seven years, including his sold-out events in 2018 and 2020, will know what a treat our ears are in for. Supported by the Liquid Funk crew on the back of dozens of epic nights at Laundry, this will be very very special.
Tokyo Prose
Sam Reed aka Tokyo Prose is NZ’s finest liquid drum n bass export to the world with releases on legendary labels Soul:r, Hospital Records, Footnotes and Lensman’s North Quarter imprint. His music is regularly supported by many of the scenes biggest names including Calibre, LSB, Lenzman, Hybrid Minds,LSB, DJ Marky, London Elektricity and many more.
His most recent release, 2022’s Twelve Tones EP, showcased his trademark lush piano melodies, crisp drums and grooving baselines. For a career of over ten years’, Tokyo Prose has a succinct and carefully managed back-catalogue of music. He has a deliberate, restrained, and soulful production style with a firm focus on musicality and groove.Tokyo Prose started his career on Samurai Music with 2011’s ‘Introducing Tokyo Prose’ EP that featured the break out tune “Saving Grace”. In the same year, Tokyo Prose with Fis went onto launch the Samurai Horo label including the track “The Truths” which featured on Forrest Swords’ 2018 DJ Kicks compilation.
In 2014 Tokyo Prose released his debut album ‘Presence’ on Samurai Music. ‘Presence’ marked the culmination of his musical exploration and evolution up until that point-encapsulating the soulful, emotive vibrancy of the Tokyo Prose sound, now fully formed and refined. The album included several features with DRS, Riya and Fox on vocals and Lenzman, Synkro and LSB on co-production.
Soon after saw his first feature on Marcus Intalex’s hugely respected labelSoul:R with ‘TellMe’, on the 5th edition of the popular Fourfit series.Tokyo Prose’s sophomore album on The North Quarter ‘Wild Grace’ delivered a masterclass in emotive musical storytelling. The project features some of his most sought-after works including the popular ‘Innate Motion’, ‘Trick of the Light’ and ‘Brilliant Corners’. ‘Innate Motion’ was also featured in Calibre’s BBC Essential Mix.
Tokyo Prose is a master on top of his game. Come down, you’ll have fun.
