We have just received this announcement from Yokota's family. 'It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Susumu Yokota who passed away on 27th March, 2015 at the age of 54 after a long period of medical treatment. We are deeply thankful to the people who listened to and supported Susumu's music during his lifetime. Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in this announcement, as we were until recently unacquainted with Susumu's music industry contacts.' 14 July. 2015 Susumu Yokota's family Please contact Yokota’s family and close friends on: yokota4ever@gmail.com We at Lo our deeply saddened by this news and send our best wishes and condolences to them. Yokota's music was always completely individual, always esoteric yet never wilfully indulgent. His touch was that of a master craftsman, creating intricate musical jewels that sparkled like no others. There's no doubt that if he had been in a position to play live concerts his reputation would far exceed many of his contemporaries. He will be sorely missed by those who value quality and originality in music.
