Hegira Moya – Slow Vein

Hegira Moya is the solo moniker of Tokyo-based composer and producer Shota Abeki, under which he has previously released a number of shorter works on various Japanese labels. On ‘Slow Vein’, he makes use of synths, guitars and drum machines to create gloomy, beautiful scapes of sound. These are structured around emotional pop-sensible melodies, that give you a dreamlike feel of nostalgia for memories you probably never lived.

The release as a whole is hard to label as one genre, at least one that already has a name – it would make a perfect fit if there was a ‘music to drive cars late at night to’-ambient subgenre. Either way, ‘Slow Vein’ has that certain type of personal and melancholy core that makes us at Moloton proud to have it as the next instalment in our expanding catalog.
