|2.||"Kohisikarubeki" (Rhythm & Soul remix)|
Shintaro.D is new on the scene, but this promising Japanese producer follows up on his debut on his own label INIT with this assured 12" for Jus Groove It, taking the stripped down deep house template and injecting it with an off-kilter approach to sound design that subtly makes for one of the most effective DJ tools heard in recent memory. That track in question is "Kohisikarubeki", and its remix by Rhythm & Soul takes those intricately carved shards of sound design and smooths them into a more conventional house music shape. The B-side finds Shintaro.D turning out more of that subversive, future-minded deep house business, with "Waganamidakana" being a clear highlight.
