Are me and Jimmy Tamborello the only people who appreciate the power and glory of Susumu Yokota? Holy crap, that fella can make some beautiful music. Tamborello usually does his dying mixes for Dublab, but he's tossed off an excellent, gorgeous mix for XLR8R that the zine has on its site right now. Totally worth your headspace, for sure.
(this Susumu Yokota track isn't on the mix, but it's one of my all-time favorite videos)
