||2.||"On The Lookout"|
||1.||"Gone From Here"|
Having come to light on labels such as SD Records and his own Mystica Tribe, Taka Noda heads over to Canadian label Silent Season for his debut album, capitalising on his emergent career in the field of dub-influenced downtempo with his most complete artistic statement to date. From the spacious stalk of "On The Lookout" to the edgy piano delay of "Peek-a-Boo", this is the work of a man who has immersed himself in the tradition of classic dub music, but not at the expense of bringing things up to date. The loose, live and natural feel of the album is testament to Noda's skills in the production department, not to mention his instinct for a killer sub-heavy rhythm.
