This review is from: Grinning Cat (Audio CD)
An excellent and highly original take on ambient, sample based chill out. Susumo's style seems to evade clear definition. Its many layered samples and instrumentation gives it an earthy, organic feel that juxtaposes with the more digital, electronic elements provided by the jagged sampling techniques and sound arrangement. Breakbeats and drum sequencers are used sparingly and never in a conventional sense, the percussive elements of each tune often being led by the more dominating samples and sounds which are perfectly selected and blended.
A very relaxing album that is still interesting and challenging.
