Album Review

Susumi Makai introduced his world of carelessly colliding strains of dance music — incorporating left-field disco, funk, hip-hop, and house, along with good old sloppy garage rock and spaghetti Western soundtracks — with 12" singles that were scattered across 2001 and 2002 on the Flesh and XL labels.

And while the numerous comparisons that have been drawn — name any combination of hip artists and have them swap bodily fluids or ride funny cars together — have mostly been bunk, there's an endearing "anything goes" playfulness at hand that more dance producers would do well to adopt. The album might be too meandering and tether-less at certain points, but the wealth of ideas practically makes it a non-issue.
