Making his mark with his first original offering of the year, esteemed DJ and producer Shogun returns with an enthralling new addition to his discography, ‘Nezuko’.
The latest single directly follows his trance rework of Conjure One & Jeza’s collaboration, ‘Wolves at the Door’ and his December release of ‘Dreamland’. Inspired by the enigmatic female protagonist from popular manga series Demon Slayer who shares the same name, Shogun’s hypnotic new production, “Nezuko,” is due for release on Friday, June 3rd via Serendipity Muzik under the legendary Blackhole Records.
Kicking into high gear with a pulsating rhythm, ‘Nezuko’ immediately infiltrates eardrums, injecting a commanding soundscape. The entrancing opus serves a transcendent ambiance, setting the atmosphere with twinkling synth manipulation.
Serving a palpably raw tension, the track builds up to a pulse-raising, oscillating intensity. The intoxicating amalgam of sonic highs and lows showcases Shogun’s expertly-crafted production style, providing an exciting precedent as for what fans and listeners alike can expect from him moving into the second half of the year.
“The main story of Demon Slayer deals with the main character Tanjiro and his relationship with Nezuko, his sister. It’s about 2 people looking out for each other, surviving, and going up against all odds, but in the end, they prevail. It’s a very emotional story and I wanted to capture this feeling in the track. ”
Continuously solidifying himself as a trance heavyweight, Shogun’s latest track displays his undeniable talent and distinct signature sound. Now embarking on a new musical journey through the imminent launch of his two new aliases, NXNJAS and Shogun Presents: Neo Tokyo, the established DJ, and producer is ready to take the year by storm with a string of music that knows no bounds.
