Compiled by Ben Eshmade from The Arctic Circle, Skintone Collection demonstrates perfectly why Susumu Yokota is held in such high regard by so many. The album features tracks from all Yokota’s ‘ambient’ releases, including Magic Thread, Sakura, and Grinning Cat. His admirers include Thom Yorke, Philip Glass, Brian Eno and Bjork. Yokota sadly passed away in March 2015. This album serves as a perfect introduction to or a reminder of the wonderful music he created.
