Classics: Namy feat. Josh Milan – From Now On (DJ Spen & N’Dinga Gaba Remix) (King Street)
From now on, from now on… Josh Milan (formerly of Blaze) comin’ up with some inflammable resolution. Therefore leavin’ us in a position where any kind of resistance seems vain. Be it from what stands as a declaration (of love) in itself. But also from the conviction he shows on his performance. Not to mention the infectious groove serving as the overall vehicle. With big ups to DJ Spen together with N’Dinga Gaba who has especially crafted it for the occasion. Both of them most likely bringin’ it to the next level while enhancing its emotional content.
From now on, from now on… “my heart will show!” What an incredible passionate trip in such a hypnotic flow. ‘From Now On’, a track which we heavily championed on our Facebook page back in 2013.

– Most likely remembered as one half of Blaze along with Kevin Hedge, Josh Milan has set himself up as both a one of a kind performer and songwriter. On his own nowadays or as a featured singer.
One thing one may notice is the way he carefully chooses the themes he expresses. And in the mean time the ones he comes to collaborate with. How to not remember the heartfelt ‘Love Each Other’ along with Yukihiro Fukutomi? Or the bittersweet ‘I Wish’ along with Matthew Bandy for instance??? Not even talkin’ about his countless collaborations with Louie Vega that would (also) give birth to countless gems. From ‘Elements Of Life’ to ‘Brand New Day’. Not to mention ‘Children Of The World’ to name but a very few…
A songwriter, producer, and keyboardist, Josh has released his long awaited ‘6.9.69’ album on his Honeycomb label in 2017.
– In less than 10 years, Japanese producer Yutaka Takanami has established himself as a driving force to be reckoned with.
Namy – that’s his nickname – first made himself a name while spinning a large number of reception parties and huge open-air festivals. Eventually crafting music selections for Japanese airline company StarFlyer.
From then, Namy would deliver 3 self-released limited edition albums by the likes of ‘Namy, ‘Namy Purple, and ‘Namy Yellow’. The latter most likely contributing to his recognition. With thanks to some consistent airplay on domestic radio stations. Meanwhile, the early 2010 saw him jumping into the front lines of the local music scene with 3 extra albums on Play Records. This in addition to his ‘Ghibli Lounge’ compilations, the second volume of which saw the light back in 2016.
Signing with NYC label King Street back in 2011 most likely helped him developping some international notoriety. From ‘There She Stands’ along with Monday Michiru as remixed by Frankie Feliciano. To ‘From Now On’ featuring Josh Milan. Eventually sharing the duties with Stephanie Cooke, Kathy Brown and Joi Cardwell. But also with Marc Evans on ‘Reset’ with remix work courtesy of Rhemi. Not to mention a couple of jams he delivered on N’Dinga Gaba‘s Global Diplomacy label such as ‘Lift Me Away’ featuring Miwa.
