Hailing from Japan, Kazuki Yamaguchi aka Kez YM has already produced a distinguished discography since debuting on Rotterdam label 4 Lux five years ago with his Sweetly Confused EP. He has subsequently released tracks on Yore (the acclaimed City Soul and Butterfly EP’s), Deep Explorer, Ragrange Records and Faces (run by City Fly’s frequent collaborator Pablo Valentino) – with his soul-infused Detroit Beatdown-inspired productions receiving support from influential peers such as Moodymann, Theo Parrish, Rick Wade and Cassy.
His productions are a permanent fixture in many a discernible DJ’s set including the City Fly crew who being such ardent supporters jetted him over for his first UK exclusive appearance for their renowned club night. His guest appearance proved to be a success with sweat dripping off the walls - showcasing his reputation as a revered selector with his seamless mixing, killer selections and boundless energy
This planted the seeds to grow an alliance that has come to fruition with Kez flying over for another exclusive DJ set for City Fly and providing a guest mix for the label’s imminent website launch. It was only a matter of time before City Fly signed Kez up for a release and after a long time coming are now pleased to announce the launch of their latest vinyl release courtesy of Kez YM himself – the ‘Late Night Blue Sound’ EP.
