Album review

Susumu Yokota - Overhead

Despite being one of Japan's biggest dance DJs and having released several tech house records such as 1995's Metronome Melody, Yokota is best known in Europe for the soulful floating ambience of recent albums such as 2000's spellbinding Sakura. Overhead neatly bridges these two seemingly contradictory bodies of work, a downtempo set of deep house tracks that draws heavily on Middle Eastern ("Wheel Tower"), African ("Aerial Chamber") and flamenco ("Bridgehead") rhythms.
