A lifelong student of jazz and classical piano, Satoshi's debut single ‘Tears’, co-produced in 1989 with the "Godfather of house", Frankie Knuckles, was an instant club hit. In the early 1990s, he toured and played keyboards for Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and has gone on to remix some of pop’s biggest names including U2, Mariah Carey, Photek, Simply Red, and David Bowie.
At the turn of the millennium, Satoshi introduced a groundbreaking new club sound via 2000’s ‘Full Lick’ album. The long-player featured dark twisted electronic rhythms, haunting vocals, and hypnotic grooves that came to set the benchmark for a new developing house scene. The album’s hit single ‘Love In Traffic’ became a worldwide underground hit.
He is now based in New York City and runs the Saw Recordings label.
