Milan Records today releases “SHAMAN KING” ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK VOL. 1 by composer and arranger YUKI HAYASHI (My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, Pretty Cure, Strawberry Night). Available everywhere now, the album features music written by Hayashi for the recent reboot of the fan-favorite anime series, which will make its US debut on Netflix.
Those called “Shamans” can interact with gods and spirits compete for the position of “Shaman King” once every 500 years in the “Shaman Fight.” One of those shamans, Yoh Asakura, is fighting to be the “Shaman King” in this completely new TV animation.
Yuki Hayashi was born in Kyoto in 1980. Being an active member in a men's rhythmic gymnastics team in his early years spawned his interest in BGM while selecting songs to complement performances. This led him to begin teaching himself music composition while at university, despite not having a background in music itself. After graduating, Yuki acquired the basics of track making under house techno DJ and sound-maker Hideo Kobayashi and started producing his first range of music accompaniments for dance sports. His experience as a rhythmic gymnast has enabled Yuki to intuitively incorporate an eclectic range of music and produce a unique sound, empowering scenes from TV drama, animation and film.
