There’s a series of ‘picks of the week‘ at this jpop site but this one in particular caught my ear. The layering of rhythms reminded me of some elements of Herbie Hancock’s ‘Dis is da Drum’, if Hancock were consuming a fizzy soft drink while floating on soft clouds made of shimmering cotton candy.
- Sasakure. UK – ネジ巻き師と太虚鳥 feat. Lasah ‘Nejimakishi to Taikyotori’
The sonic universe and hypnotic sensations one hears and feels from Sasakure.UK’s track ネジ巻き師と太虚鳥 feat. Lasah ‘Nejimakishi to Taikyotori feat. Lasah’ is like no other artist or song in Japanese electronic music. Skittering drum patterns drive the rhythmic, drum ‘n’ bass-like propulsion of the track, and a galaxy of textures, colours and instruments orbit around the listener’s senses like oblique, celestial beings.
