tokyo’s yoshinori hayashi makes his debut on lovers rock with “asylum,” an ep of deliciously bent avant-house and free jazz-esque voyages. hayashi has been making a name for himself as a formidable studio talent, and on “asylum” he offers some of his finest work to date. “agent dissolving device” welds louche narration, kaleidoscopic atmospheres and an energized girl-group hook to an earworm groove. an invaluable tool for adventurous djs, “so wrong it’s right” doesn’t begin to describe it. meanwhile, the b-side is given over to hayashi’s more sombre, quasi-chamber music leanings. “burrow” and “the old man” both use wheezing, wandering piano figures to articulate a mournful, bleary-eyed beauty that seems to flicker in the shadows of the a-side’s extroversion.
for the first release on raw m.t.’s jinn records imprint, japanese producer yoshinori hayashi continues his left-field electronic experiments debuted last year on going good with a visually-evocative voyage through ambiguous collages of distorted broken-beat tropes and far-east soundscapes. on the flip, dj sotofett provides a stunning 12 min-long oriental reverie to get things even deeper.
