His performance videos series on YouTube has exceeded 30 million views, having fans all over the world and support from A-List names such as Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Lil Jon and many more.

    Now, he’s back with an impressive EP, titled ‘Essentials‘, signed to the Japanese based imprint Avex. The title track kicks off the EP with bright melodies, driven by a powerful vocal performance from Mike Macdermid. It’s a fresh twist on progressive house, one that feels perfect for a song to wash over the festival grounds at sunset.

    Reflection” follows, featuring Poe Leos, seamlessly blending a pop-oriented style with massive electro house segments that ricochet through your speakers. “Shizuku” comes next, yet again showcasing Yamato’s versatility with a beautiful vocal sample paired with tranquil ambiance.
