Tomonari Nozaki

Tomonari Nozaki joined the Forwind roster in 2013 with his hugely well received debut album ‘North Palace’. The sublime esoteric compositions, brought to life using reel to reel tape edits, analogue synths and whole host of mysterious outboard brought ‘Tomo’ to a much wider audience, where he has gathered a very enthusiastic cult following.

2016 sees Tomonari return to the Forwind label with three sublime EP’s which were two years in the making. The process involving the artist and label was unhurried with a fastidious approach taken to the curation, selection and production. Attention to detail and the development of Tomonari’s sound took precedent over any notions of firing out a quick release. The addition of churning rhythmical elements and warm sheets of noise to Tomo’s usual widescreen lushness is sure to see more people sit up and take notice of this wonderfully distinctive producer from Japan.
