New Japanese Vibes (31) – Hiroto Kudo ‘Tripper’

Penned by Sendai producer Hiroto Kudo, Tripper’ traverses through a sumptuous and dreamy electronic voyage.

The track evolves from a luminous synth idea humming away with mellow harmonies and enriched with a deep dronal resonance. Stuttering beats, glitch samples, exotic melodic inflections, various synth textures and percussion timbres lend an evocative oceanic atmosphere as the sonic journey intensifies inch-by-inch, then suddenly plunging down to the opening embryonic foundation that casts away into the distance. It’s music that is delicately spellbinding.
