Over the years, Ken Sumitani has released a decent amount of rather good music, primarily under the Stereociti and Mono Village aliases. This, though, marks his debut under a new alter ego: Waveguide. As debuts go, it’s something of a triumph, too, serving up four essential, tried-and-tested cuts. There are two high-octane, electro-influenced offerings: the sun-bright, funk-fueled melodic bliss of “Lemma” and the heavier, raw-sounding “Tightrope”, whose skittish beats are offset by some delightfully deep melodies and even deeper chords. You’ll find some similarly smooth and hypnotic chords on the brilliant deep techno dubbiness of EP opener “Quod”, while “Cubic Root” sees the Japanese producer successfully wrap restless synth loops around a mildly trippy, Motor City influenced rhythm track.
