Shiro is the Samurai Music offshoot created specifically for emerging artists first solo release on vinyl.
Torn is a new face to the Samurai camp and our first signing from Russia. A St Petersburg native, Torn has been developing over recent years into one of the most interesting producers in the half step community with his tracks featuring heavily in the sets of many of the scenes most prominent DJ’s including Homemade Weapons, Presha, Loxy, & Clarity.
The Grethen EP is a gateway to the Torn sound. ‘Stagnation’ is the most traditional Drum and Bass of the EP with it’s bouncing, grunting lurch. ’Grethen’ goes down low and deep, while ‘Self Reflection’ is the tune bound to populate many DJ sets with it’s tribal percussion. ‘Insomnia’ ups the intensity with frantic, restless energy to close the EP. More Torn music to come on Samurai later in 2017..
Can’t leave aside our collaboration with my idol, Sam KDC, and my boss, Presha. It is a great honor for me to work with such monsters of the scene creating together a new trend in Grey Area sound. Torn
