Japan’s finest techno export is back. Since his last release for Token in 2010, Go Hiyama has graced other heavyweight techno institutions like Stroboscopic Artefacts, Perc Trax & Audio Assault. Now he returns to Token, following Phase’s highly acclaimed ‘Binary Opposition Reprocessed’ earlier this summer.
‘Arc One’ contains 3 tracks, each with a different timbre. ‘Farnsworth House’ focuses on hazy atmospherics over a stomping drum pattern, while ‘Dymaxion Map’ is a more of an instant heavy hitter with punishing percussion.
Go keeps the best for the flip side track. ‘Fallingwater’ builds slowly over a tough yet sophisticated off beat rhythm. Tension grows while the haunting noisy synths lead to a thrilling breakdown, after which it kicks back in ferociously.
Go Hiyama remains one the most interesting techno artists of the last decennium and continues to intrigue by reinventing his sound without losing that recognisable touch. I’m a fan, to say the least.
