Yokota, Susumu Skintone Collection


Formats Available

Compiled by Ben Eshmade from The Chiller Cabinet, Skintone Collection demonstrates perfectly why Susumu Yokota is held in such high regard by so many. The album features tracks from all Yokota's "ambient" releases, including Magic Thread, Sakura, and Grinning Cat.  Yokota's fanbase is broad; his admirers include Thom Yorke, Philip Glass, Brian Eno, and Bjork. His music was recently featured in the Denzel Washington film Deja Vu. Career highlights include a live appearance with Philip Glass in Sydney. Also well known in Europe for his house music releases on Harthouse, Sublime, and Exceptional, Yokota is highly regarded in Japan as a visual artist.  This album precedes the new Yokota album Love Or Die, which contains even more moments of ambient melody.  "Sublime." --The Times  "Evocative and beguiling." --Alternative Press  "Spine-tinglingly beautiful." --Wax  "Beauty incarnate."  --7  "Superlative." --Mojo
