T.O.P. records: Ebi-Zen (Space Teddy,DE)

One of our favourite musicians is Susumu Yokota aka Ebi and today we recommend his album “Zen”. A blending of ambient and acid aesthetics and rhythms turning into a masterpiece released on the German Space Teddy label, in 1994.  This is an exceptional example of his genius, talent and progressive mind. Zen stands proudly alongside other little diamonds that Susumu Yokota has left behind, all scattered across the world of good electronic music.
