Boomkat Product Review:
Since we first heard about this project late last year, ambient versions of the smashing 'Special Life' album from Hiroshi Watanabe, we knew it was one to be excited about. Over the course of three twelves for Kompakt Hiroshi moved on from early form for Nite Grooves, and applied his year or so of New York deejaying experience to building indisputable anthems, capable of straddling the styles of the likes of Carl Craig and more European jockeying. This glorious, completely beatless album works in several senses, as a 'dub' accompaniment to the original set, as invaluable for doubling up as perfect mix tools, or in its own right as a record for the early dawn or the late afternoon, when the head is pounding. Calming like aural ointment, top!
