blox Bass and drum heaven, I´ve hardly heard Mr. Laswell better than this, and the rhythm section, performed by Hideo Yamaki on this stunning track, is second to none ! Simply mindblowing !

Martin Speer Good track, but it is the track 2 from the now very expensive CD Bill Laswell, Tatsuya Nakamura, Hideo Yamaki: "Bass & Drums" (2011), then called "Kanaduchi Ni" - new cover, good as a kind of maxi CD.

A coded dialog between acoustic drums and electric bass. Master percussionist, Hideo Yamaki - Japan's premiere drummer, most respected, most recored, most in demand…without peer. From J-pop to free jazz, folkloric to metal… A true Kaijyu of universal rhythm… In duet here with American bassist Bill Laswell, presenting an intuitive duel of intense hypercussion vs fluid low end assault… overflowing, extending, colliding, unfolding… 2 voices, 2 directions. In search of the same mirage.
