Susumu Yokota is one of the very few consistently engaging electronic artists to emerge in the last ten years—always restless, always changing, and yet always himself. Love Or Die sees him return to a more distinctly “ambient” sound, similar to that found on his classic albums like Sakura and Grinning Cat—and yet there are new variations and surprising juxtapositions, such as the drum and bass meets Windham Hill textures of “The Scream of a Sage…” or the Joe Meek breakbeat of “The Loneliness of Anarchic Beauty…”  The long Zen-like titles seem to indicate that whatever the musical terrain, at the core of Yokota’s music lies a deep and profound sense of purpose and focus.  “Yet another work of deep, phantasmagoric magic… Yokota proceeds to provoke and astound in equal measure… from sublime ambient textures to polyrhythmic, poly-ethnic hybrids. Refined, delicate and endlessly intriguing, this one of Yokota’s most engaging projects for a long while.”  —Clash Magazine
