This is a cool album from Japanese electronic artist Soichi Terada. The dance beats here are all catchy (if a bit samey) and it's just a fun listen overall. There is a noticeable Japanese flavour to the woodwind on 'Bamboo Fighter' but I would have liked to this sort of sound explored more throughout the album.

Favourite Tracks: Silent Chord*, Double Spire, Bamboo Fighter, Diving Into Minds

Made me think of:
Groove Armada
Oneohtrix Point Never


Most of the time it sounds like a more energetic ''Wii sports/play/party/whatever'' 2008 ass game menu theme.
I like it.
The songs itself don't go anywhere at all, it's just nice background music to chill without making you go to sleep.
Cool album.

Best place to listen to this: late night if you want to chill but not get to sleep.
