More supercool Japanese minimalism from Oki, who last year had a hit on his hands with his tirelessly oddball remix collection Dub Ainu. Deluxe is all new stuff and if anything more pared down (not to mention barely 30 minutes long). What you get for your yen are old Ainu ladies singing over trippy, trance-inducing grooves; guest vocals from Senegal’s Fania; something reminiscent of the Camberwick Green music box; and at the heart of the mix the mysterious, dry plink of the tonkori, the ancient string instrument Oki plays when he’s not poised over the mixing desk in Hokkaido. The halfhour fl ies by.
