Eryngii Records is thrilled to announce the release of Midi Neutron’s debut album, ikeru, set to drop on March 1st, 2024. Celebrating this momentous occasion, Eryngii Records will host an album release show on the same day at Public Records, featuring headliner BIGYUKI and opener H31R. Doors open at 6:30 PM with the show starting at 7:15 PM.
ikeru is described as an exploration of identity, belief, and musical experimentation. Reflecting Midi Neutron’s Japanese American heritage, ikeru is a project that weaves together a tapestry of musical genres and influences that seeks to push boundaries. The album narrates personal growth, beginning with jazz and hip-hop-influenced beats, featuring live instrumentation throughout the project and gradually delves into the more abstract realms, influenced by NYC’s experimental hip-hop sound. Electronic textures makeup a consistent supporting theme throughout the project, speaking to Midi Neutron’s core sound. It features collaborations with artists like vocalists Nakama and Yoh from Poetic Thrust, up-and-coming jazz saxophonist Alfredo Colón, childhood best friend Zonkey, and many more.
