First Listen: Namy feat. Miwa – Lift Me Away (Original Mix) (Global Diplomacy)
Summer’s just around the bend on this Northern hemisphere of the globe. And one can already feel it! Japanese producer Namy takin’ us to more or less chilling territories on the soothing ‘Lift Me Away’. A jazzy piano led atmospheric gem serving as the ideal environment for Miwa Bravebird‘s silky vocal delivery. Therefore standing as the icing on the cake.
‘Lift Me Away’ most likely sounds like a(nother) Summer breeze. Don’t you think?

– 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.
