Wabisabi - chillout / downtempo music artist from Tokyo, Japan.
The Wabisabi project has been 10 years in the making from Tokyo-based multi-instrumentalist/producer Mickey Langley, when he first picked up a guitar and began experimenting with his first DAW. His love of music certainly didn’t begin there; he embarked on his musical journey starting with classical piano as a child, followed by years of percussion and drums, playing drums for a number of rock bands, which slowly transitioned to the guitar becoming his instrument of choice.
His sound is the amalgamation of inspirations over the years, ranging from rock, funk, hip-hop, jazz, soul, and R&B, to electronic and dance music. Some of his biggest influences include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciante, Chic, Daft Punk, Pomo, FKJ, Tom Misch, Dr. Dre, Nujabes, Jack Johnson, HONNE, and many others.
