Miroque - Botanical Sunset
Originally released in 2001, Japanese pianist Miroque's buoyant, bubbling take on electronic music is a masterpiece for the kankyō ongaku canon. Dulcet steel drums mingle with slightly dissonant synth shrapnels. Not as placid as contemporaries in the electronic and ambient scenes, this releases suffuses energetic curiosity amidst patient, minimalist tones. It's giving proto-James Ferraro and we are very much here for that!
