Susumu Yokota shapeshifted through his 30-year career. He might be known best for his ambient works from the early '00s, but he rose to prominence as a diverse house and techno producer. During the '90s he released hard psychedelic trance (The Frankfurt-Tokyo Connection) and dreamier electronica (Cat, Mouse And Me) on Sven Väth's former label, Harthouse, and trippy acid techno as Ebi on the label Space Teddy. The rest of Yokota's output—touching on techno and breakbeat, deep and jazzy house, and even disco, as on 1999—landed mostly on Japan's Sublime Records. He also toured throughout Europe during the time, notably performing at the inaugural Interference Festival in Berlin during Love Parade 1994.

The record ends with gently crashing waves. We are reminded once more of Mt. Fuji, the sacred mountain, and the five lakes lapping at its feet. It has been a site of pilgrimage for centuries, the symbol of nature and beauty in Japan, and its most iconic landmark. For acid pilgrims, Acid Mt. Fuji is a landmark too, which, thanks to this reissue, is getting the wider recognition it deserves. May it, like the mountain it's named after, endure. - Resident Advisor
