Dansu 03:37


Making her debut Belgian-Japanese artist Aili teams up with one of Eskimo Recordings' most exciting new Belgian acts Transistorcake for the mesmerising ‘Dansu’. Sung in a mixture of Japanese and English, ‘Dansu’ is a hymn to dancing the night away, the track’s taut Motorik rhythms and lambent washes of synths blending perfectly with Aili’s hushed vocals to create a hypnotic, languorously funky, track with echoes of artists like Can or Stereolab.

"I left Tokyo for Belgium when I was 7 years old. In many ways my Japanese stayed at that level. When I sing in Japanese it puts me into this naive, almost childlike mindset that allows me to express what I feel right away. You don’t need to understand the words just the feeling that they convey." - Aili

こんにちは、アイリと申します。7歳のときに東京からベルギーに引っ越しました。何くれとなく私の日本語はそのレベルにとどまりました。 日本語で歌うと、子供の頃のように自分の気持ちをすぐに表現することができます。皆さんに、言葉が分からなくても伝えたい気持ちを理解してもらいたいです。

Eskimo has always approached the divide between electronic and indie music with a reckless abandon that suggests that there is no divide at all.
