Review of Break [12k1089]

Groove (DE)

Translated from German:

American Corey Fuller has been living in Tokyo for quite some time, playing in the ambient combo Illuha. His solo album Break (12K), which produces the most delicate and indeed quite Japan-typical ambient of field recordings, analogue warmth and soft-digital glitch, is a positive example of the respectful appropriation of a foreign culture and one of the subtlest and finest ambient albums of the year, that much is already clear. The duo Stephen Vitiello & Taylor Deupree pursues a comparable quasi-Japanese aesthetic beyond perfection and symmetry for a long time.
