"Takahiro Mukai: 1409-1 (Phinery)
What starts off as a humble lot of looping, metalic clinks, and subsonic gurgling gently builds into a voltaic composition. Surface scratches morph into conscious rhythms. The condensation trails of concentraded zaps mature into tarps covering larger, focused pieces. Before you know what's happening you're sucked into the bubbling whirpool of 1409-1's carbonated carousing. Takahiro Mukai puts the crumbs, pinches, and dashes of sound under the microscope on 1409-1 and let's them live in fantastic ways. Totally an absurd thrill going down here. The only exception to that rule would be the 5 and a half minute track "#149", which is a darker, blown-out boiler, but still a killer track in it's own right. This is a rad tape and you should get it yesterday."
