- First up is an EP from 5ive—his first-ever solo release.
Powder is starting her own label called Thinner Groove.
The Japanese producer, real name Moko Shibata, says the label will be a "local musical output for sharing friend's groove to you and your friends and family." The first EP, titled Planet Be, is from Snaker founder 5ive (AKA cos/mes and Mascaras alongside Chida). Out in December and only available on vinyl, it'll be his first-ever solo record. Powder has previously worked with 5ive on a 2017 EP for The Triology Tapes called Drunkenstein.
Listen to clips of Planet Be on Juno and revisit Aaron Coultate's Breaking Through interview with Powder from 2016.
