Susumu Yokota
Grinning Cat

By Edward Blake

It's been a while since I last had a good ambient Zulu boogie so hearing Susumu Yokota's river deep compositions has brought me a little piece of nostalgic joy. Drifting strings and pianos cut up and fuse into the electronic farmyard beats and somewhere a child is born. All that good shit. Yokota is Leaf's biggest selling artist and it's not hard to see why; there's a very finely tuned musical mind at work here making music that is appealing, intricate and emotional.
