9/10 Mike Staff review, 06 November 2012

Kouhei Matsunaga’s work under his various aliases (NHK, NHKyx, Internet Magic, Koyxen, NHK’Koyxen...) is often experimental and oblique and to be honest can be a little too much like hard work for me, but these ‘Dance Classics’ titles he’s been dropping on Pan, a label from whom I’m used to expecting a bit of a challenge, have been marvellously listenable, with NHK displaying the most playful, danceable side of his output.

The first one was awash with minimal, stumbling techno beats and clever little melodies for a head-nodding journey that’s as suited to home listening as it is the dancefloor, with skittering, detailed beats, clicks and drips, weird disembodied loops  and a constant kinetic murky bass drum bounce, occasional glitchy touches but never overdone.

It’s quite an otherworldly sound that he creates but a crisp, airy and defined one with a sophisticated cool, a nod to the old school and a glint in its eye. Particularly enjoying the nihilistic post-dubstep hypno stomper that closes this LP, ‘601’, but once again the whole LP’s a winner. Whether or not you've got the first one (which I also recommend), if you’re interested in techno at all this is a record you won’t regret investing your time in.
