Starting off like a beautiful ASMR experience deep in the first, Bonraku's latest single "Sutōmu" is a joyous experience for everyone looking for safe haven in a world where bpm seems way beyond 160.

I love how beautifully the song eases listeners with its tranquil noise of birds and the feel of being in a lush rainforest. I'm about to head to Southeast Asia for some time and experiencing this makes me utterly impatient to go back to the vast ricefields and forests of Indonesia.

Bunraku is the alter ego of Dutch producer and composer Joris Feiertag - a man of endless creativity. Besides his well-known moniker Feiertag, Joris is also the person behind our label mate Alexander IV.

The track released via The Long Echo will be included in his upcoming album Toshi III. It adeptly dismantles the brass-infused hook components, reshaping them into exquisitely understated drum breaks infused with subtle hints of hip-hop flair. Once more, his unique arpeggiated motifs claim the spotlight, showcasing the unmistakable essence of Bunraku's genetic makeup.
