The Japanese avant-composer has devised a fascinating genre collage that sounds totally unique – an achievement not to be sniffed at in today’s saturated experimental scene.

His amazing sonic identity is surely a result of his twin experience as a classically trained avant-ist in japan, and cool dj and record store employee (big up!) in the country’s capital. These tracks are, needless to say, otherworldly, even when seemingly made-up of textures recognisable as everyday. They hint at hayashi’s cosmic, hypnotic, and almost ritualistic approach to music making…stunning stuff, riyl forward-thinkers eli keszler and oliver coates. “Rich collages of jazz, ambient and house… The ability to blur genres and influences is a crucial part of DJing. It's a skill that Hayashi has also mastered in the studio.” 4/5 – resident advisor
