Blanju AKA Yu-Ta makes his debut on 19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS with the release of 'Sunday Morning'. He's well known as one half of Valid Evidence, along with label head, DJ 19 since 2008. After moving to Malaysia from Japan in 2013, his sound transitioned into more Balearic tunes from new age with classical roots. Then he ended up finishing album "Langkawi Lounge Sessions", and delivering 'Sunday Morning' from it as a lead single. He teams up with Malaysian vocalist, Sharmine Bakri, full of warm organic textures and Latin Brazilian house flavours.

Next up, DJ 19 brings a flamboyant remix with fragments of melody and warm synths, like the prog sound around 2K such as Sander Kleinenberg and Sasha to craft the new sound of Blanju.

To complete the release, we welcome back Bread N Butta AKA Enno Karr and One Less Of Them. He turns the original into a soulful house vibe, using the original elements with layered melodies, 70's synth sounds and cleverly programmed rhythms to excite this track into the 120 bpm range. 

VALID EVIDENCEにてDJ 19の相棒を長年務めるYu-Taのソロ・プロジェクト、BLANJUが遂にベールを脱ぐ。クラシックの素養を持ち、ニュー・エイジな作品をリリースしていた為、過去に19BOX RECORDINGSでのリリースがなかったが、バレアリック・サイドに移行して書き溜めた作品が『Langkawi Lounge Sessions』として纏まり、「Sunday Morning」が先行カットされた。マレーシアのシンガー・ソングライターであるSHARMINE BAKRIをフィーチュアし、ラテンでブラジリアンなハウスを披露。デビューに華を添えるのは、2000年頃のSANDER KLEINENBERGやSASHAを彷彿させる仕上がりのDJ 19に、ソウルフル・ハウスに演出したBREAD N BUTTA。
