Japan’s SUDO score Drumcode debut with stunning ‘Real World’ EP

Rising Japanese duo SUDO debuts on Drumcode with the inspired ‘Real World’ EP.

The brothers Isao and Takashi – the former based in Berlin, while the other holds a forte in their hometown of Kansai-Kobe, Japan – have been grafting away at their craft for years, never compromising on quality while eschewing trends. Instead, they patiently create and wait for their opportunity.
The duo remembers Isao’s first vinyl purchase in the ’90s—a white label they’d later discovered to be Underworld’s legendary ‘Rez’. It’s from these incendiary roots that ‘Real World’ takes inspiration. It’s a trio of tracks imbued with depth, subtly, and impact.

The link-up with Drumcode happened after Bart Skils shared an early demo of ‘Real World’ with Adam Beyer. He quickly began supporting the tracks across key Awakenings, Time Warp, and Ultra gigs.


“A few years ago, we decided to quit making music that suited the big label’s taste, and concentrate on making music that we were truly and genuinely happy with. We didn’t follow trends; we just concentrated on the music we wanted to dance to on the dance floor. The ‘Real World EP’ has a lot of elements of our musical history, as well as our roots and the high-energy taste of that era.” – SUDO.

The title track is a deep, barrelling trance composition that is trippy. It conjures visions of the Underworld classic while never losing a future-minded ethos. ‘Construction’ starts as a chunky slice of percussive techno before a mesmerising ambient interlude takes the track to another realm. Mercury’ is an ethereal slice of tech trance that’s timeless. Bliss.
