Biography from
By Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Gota Yashiki earned a reputation as a dance producer and songwriter in the
late '80s, as he worked with artists like Soul II Soul and Bomb the Bass. As
the '90s wore on, Gota became progressively more interested in techno and
electronica. He finally became a recording artist in his own right in the
As a child, Gota Yashiki (b. 1962, Kyoto, Japan) was taught to play traditional
Japanese drums by his father. When he became an adult, he decided to
pursue a music career. In 1982, he moved to Tokyo, where he became a
member of Rude Flower as a vocalist and drummer. Rude Flower would
eventually evolve into Mute Beat. In 1983, he left the group and joined
Melon. Over the next few years, Melon began to make inroads into the
European market, and in 1986, the group recorded Deep Cut in London for
the CBSE label. "Hardcore Hawaiian," a single pulled from Deep Cut, became
an underground hit that year.
Despite the group's increasing popularity in Britain, Gota returned to Tokyo,
where he produced several artists and worked at the independent
dance/hip-hop label, Major Force. He then moved to Paris, where he
produced African artists. In 1988, he moved to London, where he
collaborated with Soul II Soul and Bomb the Bass. He programmed the drums
on two of Soul II Soul's best-known songs, "Jazzie's Groove" and "Get a Life,"
and he played drums and bass on "Back to Life." He also remixed many of the
group's songs. Gota also played on Sinead O'Connor's breakthrough single
"Nothing Compares 2 U."
Early in the '90s, he alternated soundtrack work with producing and
programming (credited as "the Groove Activator") for Bomb the Bass, ABC,
Michael Rose, Gavin Friday, Swing Out Sister, and Seal. He was also one of
the studio musicians on Simply Red's Stars. Gota spent several years touring
with Simply Red, during which time he also prouced Nokko's debut Hallelujah.
In 1993, he worked on recordings by Oleta Adams, Seal, Bjork, and
It's So Different Here
In 1994, Gota continued his production work, but he also began preparing his
own solo career. That summer he released the single "Someday," then spent
the rest of the year working on his record, Live Wired Electro. The album was
released in 1995 under the name Gota & the Low Dog, and it featured
vocalist Warren Dowd. Over the next year, he promoted the album around
the world. During 1996, Gota and Dowd worked on their second album, It's
So Different Here, which was released early in 1997. Let's Get Started
followed in early 1999. The album, Day & Night, followed a year after.
review from
by Jonathan Widran
Even if the label on the disc hadn't offered reassurances that "this is acid
jazz," composer/producer Gota Yashiki's It's So Different Here lets listeners
know with raging electric guitar textures that add an alternative rock zip to
'70s-flavored keyboard riffs, spacy effects, and bouncing grooves that even
3rd Force would have trouble keeping up with. Occasional tracks like "Sensual
Wave" keep the disc just cool and romantic enough to achieve mainstream
acceptance outside of the acid jazz world. On the other hand, reliance on
bland vocals to find airplay possibilities in the smooth jazz world comes across
as heavily contrived and fairly uninteresting. While Yashiki, providing all
programming loops, leads the way, it's the performances by keyboardist
Bernie Worrell and saxmen Ian Kirkham and Jacko Peake that make the
positive differences referred to in the album title.
