Overrated classic in my opinion. Sound engineering is flat, atmosphere lacks depth, tracks are disappointment after another.

After all these years of ignorant dislike, sorry dupstep... Now I know better, let's be friends okay? For a techno fan this hits like thousand volts.

Jon Hopkins paints enchanting sonic artwork with palette of sounds varying from mechanically synthetic waveforms to earthly organic timbres.

Hopkins breeds classical style with electronic beats to produce something special. He just doesn't stack the two ... See full review

One of the pointiest reviews ever published on the internet

I would recommend Dousk - D.I.Y. It's pretty similar and absolute banger. Nice combination of breaks and 4/4, with both ambiance and dance floor authority
Maybe some Legowelt too, try his album The Paranormal Soul

What a pleasant album. Mesmerizing union of banging kick, frosty noises and lush sweeps with some melodic aspect.

Melodic dub techno done right. Not a single dull moment in this album, all tracks are unique and outstanding, and progress very smoothly from one to another. This has to be my favorite melodic dub techno album since Yagya's Rigning

Dangerously hypnotic stuff. Dark but soothing journey, this is one of the most trance inducing techno I have ever heard. Minimal core in it's essence, layered with plenty of subtle details playing with various musical genres.

I liked the first one better. It has more filthy underground vibe and in your face attitude. This production is more polished but misses the charm of first album. Still one of the best in it's genre anyway

At last a fresh sounding discovery, an memorable album standing out from the surplus of kitsch psybient. Best of it's style after Carbon Based Lifeforms discography and Connect.Ohm's outstanding 9980.

First half of the album wasn't that impressive but ... See full review

This is all about the looping orchestral samples. Raw, mundane, organic ambiance without gimmicks but a lot of depth. The beat is minimal, melody is non-existent. This is not a music to listen to. This is music let oneself dissolve into. Merging into it, ... See full review

This obscure gem have grown one of my favorite bedtime albums. First of all, it reminds me of Boards of Canada. A lot. And this is absolutely good thing - it's a rarer sound one would thing! It's the pattern hypnotic drum beats, hazy long sustained ... See full review

I like this style of techno. Dark, ominous and death simple, yet ultimately immersing. Harsh POW POW POW without gimmicks, just the tribal rhythms, anemic hi hats and right amount of cold ambiance for immersive experience. I am new to the techno, and am ... See full review

Overrated, plain bad album in my books. This album completely lacks depth and the mesmerizing aspect of ambient. Instead, it's like the ambient arrangement of children's songs from Disney movie. This album is packed with naive, irritating tinkling ... See full review

Best ambient I have heard for a while. It's a deepdive into dark, cold soundscapes with hidden spots of comfort. Dissociative stuff

I was hyped for the Avg Rating: 4.9 / 5 and disappointed. Melodies are lame, songs are each other copies, textures are thin, atmosphere is lacking. Only the last song had any soul in it. Technically flawless, but ultimately boring record.

High quality production. This album delivers warm, instrumental melodies and airy textures backed by fat, GROOVY bass. Hits hard, but isn't aggressive by any means. Colorful but not oversaturated, juicy but not cheesy. Perfect balance of playfulness, ... See full review
posted a review of Yagya - Stars And Dust. over 2 years ago
This is an spectacular album from Yagya. His style to mix dub techno with neo-classical elements is unique and pleasant. Stars And Dust has familiar feeling to Rigning, but ventures even further with melodic progressions, textures and dynamics. It ... See full review
posted a review of Biosphere - Microgravity. over 2 years ago
Dark, cold vintage sounds and ruthless, deep bass is what makes this album appealing. Original simplicity. Whereas ambient techno albums later of that decade serves warm, organic sounds, Microgravity is cold, ominous even. It's as much about hypnotic ... See full review

Exactly my thoughts. Probably because it has very little to do with dub techno, and is more about sustained pads and even rhythm

Atmospheric, genuine electro without gimmicks. Warm analogue synths, groovy beats, minimal addicting melodies and no bullshit. Original, fun and relaxing journey from start to finish.

For me, this is best modern release from this genre. I think it's more solid and satisfying whole than anything by those most popular futuristic ambient downtempo artists such as Carbon Based Lifeforms, Solar Fields or Aes Dana (which are also worth ... See full review

Primitive and repetitious patterns without anything one would consider trendy. Not really music, but a wall of sound, impressions of ancient nature, choice of modern shaman. One either hates or loves this kind of stuff, it depends of the objective. If ... See full review

I love the rain, and I love this album, which concept is rain. Indeed, it sounds like quiet city in rainy afternoon. Hazy swells and echoes with continuous distant beat. No hard edges or too strong expressions. Melodic touch subtle enough to retain that ... See full review

Smooth as silk. Beautiful soundscapes and catchy beats. Not many albums of this genre manage to get me lost for 79 minutes as this one, as I find house music generally monotone. Half way through I was astonished how the album gets better and better and ... See full review

Just found out about The Sushi Club after going through a lot of dull or cliche downtempo albums in discogs recommendations. The typical problem with this genre is the lack of originality or going too experimental.

This is not the case with Sakura by ... See full review
