Susumu Yokota: Sakura

asiafan Post in Electronic, Japan, Music

The Wire Magazine’s electronica album of the year 2000. Susumu Yokota is one of Japan’s biggest house/techno DJs, but this album is more about the soft, ambient tunes.

The album is full of dreamy, catchy, loop-based melodies. It can’t be described in details, it’s just the kind of music we expect when seeing the cd cover. Beautiful, delicate, picturesque. It has a little Japanese flavour, thanks to some instruments and melodies but what really makes us think of a Japanese garden is the mood. Its looping sounds remind us of a gently babbling stream and the beautiful melodies play like a sunbeam dancing among the cherry blossoms (sakura).
