Other than single-track contributions, remixes, and singles as Fabio Lazaro and Almost East since 2015, Iwata has kept a reasonably low output. He’s most strongly affiliated with Junki Inoue’s SAISEI label, where he’s been editing pioneering early Japanese techno from the likes of Suzukiski for re-release.
The 10 tracks galvanise his growing studio reputation, exploring an eclectic array of tempos and genres from ambient textures and field recordings to broken dancehall rhythms, dub, and techno.
