Ittetsu, in Japanese can be translated to read “One Iron”. In the 17th Century Ittetsu’s forefather was an artisan for specialist swords which were made for the King of Japan. His inimitable work was so exceptional the King of Japan gave him the name “Ittetsu”. 300 years later Ittetsu has inherited the spirit of the true workman which he now fully translates into his unique and precise production style, just like his forefathers swords!
His first release “Voices EP” on Four:twenty recordings which includes the remarkable remix by Manuel Tur scored No.1 in the Beatport Deephouse section. As Ittetsu builds up his organic techy house sounds with Jun Akimoto (Fasten Musique Concrete), he consistently secures signings to labels such as Welt, Resopal and Metroline to name a few. His tracks have been supported by tINI, Marco Carola, Nima Gorji, Anthony Collins, Italoboyz and Kevin Griffith.
His most recent project with Luke Miskelly (Fuse) has inspired him to indulge in a deeper sound and will surely hit the dancefloor in a positive, as it has done time and time again. Their first track “Gutterlove” has been heavily played by Enzo Siragusa and the Fuse crew. It has been a huge success at Fuse, sending the crowd wild on a weekly basis! Their “Gutterlove” EP is due out on Fuse London in 2012.
