Three years in the making, Netflix’s ‘Yasuke’ is a six- episode anime series created by Bronx-bred and Japan-based television animation creator, producer and director LeSean Thomas (‘Cannon Busters’, ‘Children of Ether’, ‘The Boondocks’) and starring actor / executive producer LaKeith Stanfield (‘Atlanta’, ‘Sorry To Bother You’) as the voice of the title character. ‘Yasuke’ tells the story of a samurai warrior of African descent in a fantastical alternate universe version of feudal Japan full of magic, mechs and of course, swordplay.
A dream project for the producer, Flying Lotus consulted on the story, working alongside renowned anime creators Studio MAPPA as an executive producer on the project. The skillset of the GRAMMY Award-winning producer is on complete display on the album, hybridizing synth melodies, bass lines and machine generated drum patterns while exploring new sonic territory - traditional Japanese percussion instruments like the taiko and hyōshigi and west African percussion - a nod to the Afro-Japanese, feudal yet futuristic world Yasuke inhabits.
