Boomkat Product Review:
NYC’s Palto Flats catch Foodman at his coolest and grooving, tempering his wilder tics to slinkier effect in 5 weightless ambient-jazz-house charms.
One of the most striking sonic characters to emerge in recent years, Shokuhin Matsuri a.k.a. Foodman follows up a brace of ace releases with these beautifully spacious works, ranging from a mesmerising 6 minute stepper called ‘Miziburo’ that sounds like a frothier Shinichi Atobe, to delectable ambient-jazz fusions int escaping dub chords and fragmented jazz chops of ‘Nanika’, thru the deliquescent diffusion of floating keys, ultra-minimal percussion and playful harmonies in ‘Tokai Desu’.
If you’ve ever been intrigued by this artist and not checked him yet, this is the perfect place to build an appetite for Foodman.
