the tokyo-based producer yoshinori hayashi thrives in organic elements, threading well-worn melodic timbres through understated percussion to achieve a singular, meditative palette.  hayashi stands out within japan’s vibrant electronic music community; the wonderful smalltown supersound has latched on to his prowess and will release his debut full-length, ambivalence, on october 26th.

on lead single “bit of garden,” hayashi deploys a warbly, hypnotic piano loop on the track’s nocturnal synth foundation, its percussive elements pinpointing a groove only after fully internalizing the subdivisions.  secondary elements emerge and swirl together as the track progresses, enveloping hayashi’s soundscape in an almost celestial exterior that yearns to depart this world.  listen in below.
