Japanese edit whizz Mori Ra has made quite a name for himself with a string of outings on labels like Forest Jams and Rotating Souls. Coveted from the day of release, the Osaka native’s 12″s always seem to fly off the shelves and his ever-excellent Japanese Breeze mix series always gets heavy rotation from us here at If-Only.
Bound for Europe this month, Mori Ra will visit France, the UK, Bulgaria and the Netherlands, treating all in attendance to a journey of sonic exploration through the Land Of The Rising Sun. A connoisseur of all things cosmic, psychedelic and balearic, we urge you to go check this guy out if you’re in town.
Touching down in France, the tour kicks off with an appearances alongside Sacha Mambo in Lyon and Paris with the Pilotwings. Then it’s on to Electric Orpheus Festival in Bulgaria before setting off to Amsterdam for Disco Dolly where he’ll be joined by fellow re-editor Ruf Dug. Gigs in Leeds and Manchester with the Outlaws Yacht Club and Wet Play follow, with a final date alongside London-based party starters Good Genes at The Pickle Factory.
