About this item
Japanese electronic music stalwart Keita Sano returns to Let’s Play House with a slew of fresh tracks, "Kubo" marking the first in a new series of EPs from the star. Electric and charged, "A Place Called Sun Beach" kicks things off in peak time fashion, a highly kinetic groove rippling with excitement and tension as the rubbery arps and darting leads collide across pogoing house drums. "Hmmm" is up next with clattering snares and sloppy kicks. Its intriguing and slightly off-kilter but still dancefloor-centric and destined for nightclub play. "Sweet Fruit" sees the adventurous producer utilize brilliantly constructed patterns and complicated tape delays, making for a heady and lysergic listen - tropical, rhythmic and engrossing; the perfect late night centre piece to blow away the competition. "My Pain" concludes with an exotic, cosmic-disco-house hybrid, the kind you might find on Tusk Wax or To Rack And Ruin, only with a little more gerth and bite. Belting stuff from Sano as always.
Matt says: Keita Sano goes from strength to strength! Really powerful stuff here for Let's Play House. Seriously, how can we get this cat over to Manchester...?!
