Comment: Oshi Kito is a musician of Japanese heritage though he is not making music with the influences of J-pop, anime or Japanoise, at least on this 4-track issue which gets clocked in at a 17-minute. I guess the aforementioned styles are the most represented ones from the arrogant westerner`s view though depending on a viewer`s personal preferences undoubtedly. Oshi Kito`s music is inflected by dub, and exquisite broken rhythms which used to wobble and change its pace due those bold synthesised frequencies and rattling drums invoking the sense of drum and bass, and breakbeat (especially at Fauld). At Fauld those synthesizers used to chime like being conjured up by ghastly cats of whom you have no wish to meet otherwise altogether. Indeed, the more you listen to it the more one`s understanding and categorization of the issue is getting blurred, especially if you do listen to such tracks as Kuishi Katika. and Drop Moon. The former of them chimes like an art house journey where the metallic beats used to twist and swing thereof somehow reminiscent of such artists as Cagey House, and Oneothrix Point Never`s R Plus Seven (2013). The latter one exploits uncanny high tones which used to sound like being produced on a keytar atop downright rough bass sequences to create a new intriguing universe. The marvellous issue is a part of the discography of Fusion Netlabel.
