Osaka’s Koshiro Hino steps up to the plate for the next journeys by Nous Disques with an oblique experiment in syncopated, gritty-textured, deep-hued techno with a heroic dash of industrial malevolence. The EP opens with ‘Borei’ an out and out mind melter of a track reminiscent of the golden days of DJAX-UP, before travelling to sparse second wave spaces with ‘Doobidoo’ and ‘Shadow’ a perfect partnering of nonchalant efficiency. Side two comprises the doomy and dense ‘Holy Goof’ which at over 8 minutes makes for a soporific listen, while the EP’s closer ‘Smog’ featuring AKN, is an adventurous sensorial amalgamation of muted hiss and hum with a deliberate metallic heartbeat winding the track ever tighter on its perfectly realised axis.

YPY is the work of Osaka based Koshiro Hino. Having recently released on labels such as Nous, his own label BirdFriend, and the legendary EM records Koshiro now presents the 7 track LP ‘2020' for Where To Now? Records. The LP leads with the slow building, off kilter title track ‘2020', where flurries of eastern horns skitter beneath evolving layers of wonked yet beautifully balanced percussive movements, coming off like a technoid homage to the fourth world works of Eno & Hassel. As is the case with much of Hino's music, as the piece develops it takes on heavier and heavier modes of experimentation and excitement – turbines whirr and fizz alongside layers and layers of percussion, constantly teetering on the edge of No-Wave breakdown whilst never losing sight of the rhythmic backbone, recouping from every moment of collapse with total grace. Hino swings from this cacophony of rhythms on ‘2020' to the playful, straight-laced ghetto tech burn of ‘Soup', using layer upon layer of low key jazzed melody and percussion to gather pace and momentum, showing another side of the YPY palette with a deep groove and melody indebted to the work of Carl Craig as Psyche/BFC and the like. Hino creates a musical world that veers from the frantic to the sublime seamlessly and appears to ground his interest in the potential harmony of these two states – or more specifically, how the two can exist in a way which keeps heads down and bodies moving in a dancefloor capacity whilst challenging the listeners expectations at every turn. Whilst obviously this is not a new concept, it is Hino's own historic steeping in experimental drone, improvisation, and his work with his intense, hypnotic, minimalist psych outfit Goat which allow him to hold a unique position in this electronic realm. Yusaku Shigeyasu (Juno Plus) further conveys this aura of Hino's work in a YPY feature piece for Juno Plus, writing - “Intensity is a common thread that runs through all of Hino's sprawling productions. It isn't necessarily synonymous with a boisterous, forceful sound. He eschews conspicuous structures or overt arrangements and brings a sonic potential out of sober materials, creating deceptively stark pieces with a dramatic impact that capture and hold the attention from the off.” - Yusaku Shigeyasu / Juno Plus Hino's more rockist influences are perhaps most pertinent on ‘Ash' which embodies this improvisational and stark approach to rhythm. ‘Soup' is a doomy, sludge hybrid of fizzing electronics and stoner swagger, owing as much to contemporary artists such as Earth and Om, as it does to the first wave of Japanese and German experimental psych of the early 70's. It's a piece which is unlike anything else on the record, a vital piece of the puzzle when understanding where Koshiro is coming from, yet leaving no clues as to where he is going.
