Product description

Product Description

press reviews:
"So exquisite you're almost afraid to touch it in case it breaks. Sakura's message is clear: listen up, mortals, and learn some fucking humility" Muzik, 4/5

"Intelligence, subtlety, insinuation - these are the elements that Yokota prizes most highly" NME, 8/10 and Pick of The Month

"In the grand tradition of Japanese minimalism, Yokota's supremely ambient sound odysseys beguile and delight, moving ever-so-slowly towards their gentle climaxes with gorgeous precision" The Face

"A stunningly beautiful record.....Susumu Yokota continues to show himself as one of the most gifted producers on the planet, and, not before time, the early works of Eno and Aphex Twin have been joined on their pedestal" Wax, 10/10, Abstract Album Of The Month

"Powerfully emotional...music that seeps into your bones... Sakura bears comparison with Eno's finest 70s recordings" The Mix, 9/10

"His ability to create blissfully enchanting music has been compared to that of Brian Eno... Fantastic sounds to immerse yourself in completely" DJ, 8/10

"Pretty much flawless" The Sunday Times

"An exquisitely chilled delight" Q, 4/5

"Cool, calm and collected, Sakura is the most well-chilled album of the year" The Independent

"Yokota manages to make the finest soul-soothing music out there. Incredible." Level

"Truly amazing, a perfectly poised amalgam of easygoing chillout and laidback warmth" The Wire

"God-like genius" Sleazenation

"Fragrant... delicate... intoxicating music" iDJ, 4/5

"Sakura floats and provokes, but the intricate view is never obscured by fluffy clouds" The Guardian

"It's the sheer physical and intellectual power that stays with you" Mojo

"Captivating enough to rank alongside any of Brian Eno's Music For... classics. There's a rare delicacy on offer that's overwhelmingly emotional. You'll never think the same way about ambient music again" amazon.co.uk

"Sakura is a revelation. The music on this superlative album is warm, otherworldly and deeply soulful" muse.ie

"Yokota is a master of understatement, using a voice that whispers but which rings out with the clarity of its distinct, masterful command and sheer melodic confidence. Words merely banalize the beauty of this recording. Go and listen" Motion

"gorgeous and essential" Overload

"One of the albums of the year" Ben Wilcox, Straight No Chaser

Amazon.co.uk

Ambient music. Just leave the fridge on for an hour, put microphone close by, record and release in nicely packaged artwork. That's what the cynics would say. They've clearly never been anywhere near Sakura. While Japan's Susumu Yokota is better known for leftfield techno and weird-beard house, this venture into the world of chilled-out soundscaping is captivating enough to rank alongside any of Brian Eno's Music For... classics. Tapping into the spirit of Eno's 1970's experimentalism (think My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts), tracks like the Afro-tinged "Uchu Tanjyo" and "Hisen" capture the sound of global drifting beautifully. The pace throughout (apart from the jazzed-up "Naminote" and Moroder-ish "Hogoromo") is metronomic, but never soporific. On "Saku" and the celestial "Kirakiraboshi", there's a rare delicacy on offer that's overwhelmingly emotional. You'll never think the same way about ambient music again.--Calvin Bush
