Having broken cover last March to release an album of wonderfully eccentric electronica on Alien Jams, Hoshina Anniversary returns to ESP Institute for the first time since the tail end of 2019. The Japanese producer is once again in cosmic and otherworldly - but nevertheless dancefloor-friendly form, prioritising undulating acid bass, bongo-rich drums, jazz-funk style electric piano solos and alien-sounding chords on mid-tempo opener 'Karakuri'. He brilliantly pitches down the tempo on accompanying track 'Michinoku', quirkily underpinning a clicking, lo-fi drum track with minor key piano riffs and creepy-but spacey chords on 'Michinoku'.
