Boomkat Product Review:
Tokyo’s one-to-watch, Yoshinori Hayashi follows his nifty 2018 debut LP with this devilish selection of electro-dub, techno and cyber-house audities for crew at Norway’s Smalltown Supersound.
As with his string of acclaimed singles for Going Good, Lovers Rock and Jheri Tracks that led up to 2018’s ‘Ambivalence’ album, Yoshinori Hayashi can’t help but play the game his own way on ‘γ’ (or Gamma, if you’re wondering what that symbol is).
Up top he rolls out slinky, Miami-styled electro-dub pulses smudged with curdled Braindance tones in the lissom glyde of ‘U’, whereas ‘Cs’ is locked to a late ‘80s/early ‘90s swing-jack meter somewhere between Suburban Knight and more playful Japanese house strains, contrasting darkside bass heft with strange, glancing, metallic electronics. Down-town, he wends off into early UK or Belgian techno vibes with the horror score choral motif and haughty jack of ‘I’ that may well leave you feeling dosed up, and finishes with a wicked piece of techno minimalism that sounds like a dead groggy Plastikman workout.
