Boomkat Product Review
Trust Less is a beatless version of Kaito's most recent full-length, Trust (his third for the label), and the material stands up predictably well to having its percussive component scooped out. The material sounds perfectly full and balanced without the 4/4 lynchpin, and often a sense of motion and rhythmic order is retained by virtue of the prominent melodies, basslines and BPM-synced delay effects that tend to pervade through Kaito's music. If you're familiar with the original release you'll know exactly what's in-store for you here, although so complete and fulsome is this artist's programming style that Trust Less feels curiously like a proper album in its own right. Also sweetening the deal are an additional two remixes of 'And That Was The Way', supplied by Echospace. Both are quite magnificent dub-techno outings, exhibiting a serious bass-driven, quasi-ambient gravitas.
