"Musical styles come and go but Susumu Yokota reigns supreme in a universe of his own making. Instantly familiar and yet full of surprises, like all of Yokota's best music Dreamer leaves the listener in a state of wonder. This is meditative music but miles away from new age wallpaper. Eastern flavors permeate many of Dreamer's tracks, mixing with free electronic noise to create what John Hassell called "Fourth World music" capable of transporting the listener to a new universe. Yokota transforms sounds that in other hands could have a disturbing effect into tools for opening the mind. Within so-called "popular" music, there are few who make art with Yokota's depth and ease. His never sounds forced, fake or phony; never trite, tired or tentative; always fully formed and wholesome. So it comes as no surprise that his fans include Thom Yorke, Brian Eno and Philip Glass, and that Dreamer is another superb addition to the Yokota catalog." (label info)
