A true MASTER.... May God bless your soul Susumu for the beautiful, reflective and deep music you left this planet.

What a great pity. I just found out about his death reading these comments and the tears come to my eyes. I am really sad, his music seemed to me of incomparable beauty. I wish him the best, wherever he is. His legacy will last forever.

I was in musical and personal mourning when I discovered last year that Susumu had died... man what a loss to electronic music, yet let's flip this around: what a gain to electronic music his life was! If you are reading this I implore you to seek out and listen to his works - a breath-takingly innovative man with amazing ideas and limitless ability. A real fucking legend type-of-guy. RIP mate, thanks for everything! Alec x

So far I have been placing only positive reviews on my favorite artists and I it is unlikely that Susumu Yokota will change this streak. Undoubtedly on of Japan's finest gifts to the electronic music world. With acid classics in the beginning of the nineties, ambient milestones closer to 2000 and yet another fruit of his miracle tree in 2003, this man knows no boundaries.
Layered, dreamy, spiritual, warm, broken, fluent, uplifting, quiet, energetic and calm. A rising son from the country where the sun rises.
