Yohei Matsuzaki, the artist behind the project PURE PRESSURE, was born 1979 in Chiba, Japan. After coming across his first psychedelic experience in Budapest Hungary in 2001, he moved to San Francisco California and soon after started producing his own blend of full on morning psytrance. He has played in countless parties in Japan and USA including the burning man festival. His first release was with SF based label Vaporvent, a collaboration with Mekkanikka called Wherehouse Memories. Since then he has continued to develop his own distinct style. In 2004, he moved back to Japan where he started his live project as PURE PRESSURE and became active in Japanese Psy-trance scene. Around 2005 he worked with some Japanese major record labels and released the joint album called Ga Shin Shou Tan with Theoreme from King Records in 2007 and compilation album called Killer Trance (which he worked as directorr for this project) from Dreamusic in 2008. In the end of 2008, he joined Nutek Records then he left for Europe tour and has made numerous collaborations with CPU, Painkiller, MekkaNikka, MadMaxx, XSI, Madnetic while he was in Europe. In 2009, he released his first track wtih Painkiller from Nutek Records, and released anoher collaboration track (Spread Your Wings remix) with DJ Rew from Farm Records in Japan. In late 2009 he started to prepare and concentrated on his 1st album around this time, and in 2010 he finally came up with his debut album called PRESSURIZED.The groovy energy of his music can be described as a synthesis of two opposing forces- organic, crystal clear synth lines combined with the mechanical, tech-inspired kick, bass and drums. When the music starts and these forces weave into each other, the result is PURE PRESSURE. Look out for his sets at upcoming festivals and parties near you.
