Susumu Yokota: My Energy

My-Energy

Bandcamp download

A lovely posthumous compilation of Yokota’s tracks, culled from the composer’s extensive back catalogue. It’s available as a pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp.

Some lovely words from Joe Muggs:

“We can talk about cultural relevance, about how he prefaced Four Tet and the electronic:acoustic fusions of the 2000s, about how he knew about the continued relevance of house. We can talk forever about what his music meant and continues to mean. But really Susumu Yokota was about something deeper and stronger than trends or easy interpretations. The sounds he made were as natural, as regular and as beautiful as the seasons, and as immune to human preference. And with him or without him they keep being heard.”
