Where his first EPs and debut album Slow Waves mingled with nostalgia and adjusting to Tokyo city life, this is a celebration of stability – the tale of the beatmaker finally being comfortable within his latest surroundings. Just like the view from his apartment, these tracks play out like towering glimpses across a nocturnal city panorama.
Amidst the vocal snippets of Goapele (on “Thinking About You”) and twinkling nightriders like “Bokeh” lies “Gloom”. A number that’s dark by title, yet pearly in its timbre. Shifting along like an early AM nightbus soundtrack, it tides together puffy footwork paddles, R&B wails and the glint of electric piano in an alluring, eventide bundle.
