BIGYUKI is NYC’s musical secret weapon. The extensive vocabulary of this Japanese keyboardist and songwriter fuels his ability to create an entirely new sound by infusing elements of jazz, classical, hip-hop, soul, rock, dance, and electronica into his compositions. A unique mix of styles and inspirations with which he continues to push the ever-changing limits of (jazz) music.
BIGYUKI’s debut full-length album, Reaching for Chiron is a perfect synthesis of heart and technology, with heavy beats and buoyant melodies. The release was hailed by WBGO as ‘sonically immersive ‘ a celestial strain of synth jazz.’ DJ Mag and PopMatters also praised the album, calling it ‘sonically kaleidoscopic’ and ‘infectiously interesting.’ BIGYUKI brings these compositions to life onstage in dynamic performances with a bassist and drummer at his side.
