Last month, Monstercat acquired beloved LA-based label, Silk Music, bringing deep & progressive house, chillout, ambient, trance, and more into its genre portfolio.
Introducing the label’s third brand, Monstercat Silk, revered Japanese producer Shingo Nakamura kicked off the launch with his stunning single, “Glow.” Today, Shingo returns to Monstercat Silk with “Phenomena,” the second track off his forthcoming album, ‘Glow’, due out in June. Continuing to impress with his weightless sound design, “Phenomena” is yet another transportive original drenched in soothing basslines.
Shingo Nakamura shares, “I used more analog synthesizers and percussion than usual to make the listener feel warmth. I hope it gives listeners a happy and nostalgic feeling, as if it reminds them of a beautiful memory.”
Shingo is one of the most played progressive house acts on YouTube, collecting over 10 Million views of his ‘Best of Shingo Nakamura’ series alone. His distinct blend of progressive house and classical-leaning compositions has cemented him as a leading tastemaker in Tokyo, with performances at the iconic Womb nightclub. Shingo has been supported by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Ilan Bluestone, BT, Jaytech, and more, in addition to boasting collaborations with scene shapers like Jody Wisternoff and Anjuna’s James Grant. Stay tuned for more music off his highly-anticipated full-length project, ‘Glow,’ on Monstercat Silk.
