Thanks to the friendly proprietor of my local record store I got turned onto Rei Harakami almost from the beginning of his short career. 'Unrest' is a strong debut that points to greater work ahead. Harakami is a keenly musical producer who plots ambitious themes that fly off in unexpected directions. He often favors a synthetic palate that includes a whirring organ and unusual variations in decay and reverb. While some tracks almost seem to verge on madness in terms of detail and intensity it is obvious he made this music with a lot of passion and patience.
I have thousands of things to listen to but I find myself returning to Harakami's stuff frequently. Trippy and focused; delirious and lucid: that's Harakami.
