Dusty, drifting rhythms from the Tokyo artist on The Trilogy Tapes.
When Trystero makes dance music, it's ambling and leisurely, as strange melodies float by drum patterns that feel like rickety scaffolding on the verge of collapse. But the best meat on this release is the kind stuck to the bones: the shorter tracks hidden between all the lo-fi house. Best of all is number two, "洞窟" (or "Cave"), whose pendulous melodies drift along punctuated by squiggly sound effects, like something coughed up by an aged machine. It's odd and a little esoteric, but the weirdness is what makes it so captivating.
