- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

Dedicated to Shunryu Suzuki, the Sōtō monk who popularised Buddhism in America, this sophomore album from Austrian electronica duo Tosca is as zen as trip hop gets. Unlike their debut LP, Opera, which was opulent and sultry - their 2000 effort released via !K7 / G-Stone was much more delicate and laidback. Suzuki was designed to be a downtempo soundtrack to enlightenment, and it achieves such. 

From the funky decelerated pulse of “Annanas” to the chilled out loveliness of “Ocean Beat” - Suzuki brims with tranquil warmth and hypnotic grooves. In contrast to much of Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber’s catalogue, this record is notable for being mostly instrumental, featuring only breathy vocal samples that blend seamlessly into the mellow simplicity and light touch of the album’s hypnotic soundscapes.
