Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Ukiyo

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

After dropping new single 'Clicky' late last month, and with the release of his debut EP Fantasy coming up this month (on 25th July), Ukiyo has been busy! Scroll through and check out some of the tunes Ukiyo loves the most.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Dancing in the Moonlight' by Toploader
One of my first memories ever is pretending to play along to that song with my mate.  Who could ask for a better introduction to music.

What song would you love to sample?
I really love Ahmad Jamal’s theme from M*A*S*H, I’ve always wanted to have a crack at sampling it, but Gramatik did such a fantastic job with it in their song Skylight that I’ve never let myself.

What song did you last listen to?
'Solstice' by Brian Bennett
Right now, I’m listening to 'Solstice' by Brian Bennett, just discovered this album today!  Such a cool space vibe adventure and the album art is breathtaking.

What song do you wish you collaborated on?
'Shelter' by Porter Robinson & Madeon 
The song is perfect already, but a boy can dream, right?  Those guys seem incredibly genuine and sincere as well, I’d love to be in a room with them.

What song is your ultimate party track?
It’s a playlist really, but it starts with 'Close To Me' by The Cure.  I’ve also got this crazy Salsa remix of Coldplay’s Clocks that I pull out whenever I can.

What song has been your favourite track of this year so far?
'NUMB' by Hayden James & GRAACE
Everything about this track is so damn cool and unique.  Hayden’s new track is fantastic as well, can’t wait to see what’s to come.

You can purchase 'Clicky' here or stream it via Apple Music
