about

Really like it esp. the first track(Grasshopper) and the third one(Twilight)
top stuff played it on my weekly radio show already
(Dj Morpheus aka Samy Birnbach - BE) 

----------
A great mixture of electronic experimentalism and soul music this week, kicking off with a great Japanese talent, Yosi Horikawa, a sound designer who likes mixing up the sound of the world with some great beats.
(James Barrie - Global SoulJah and BBE Records Radio Show - UK) 

----------
Yosi Horikawa brings a fresh slice of sonic treatment to the ears
the touch ep does exactly that, with it's sophisticated sound design
and warm textures.. the soundtrack to autumn nights...
(Jay Scarlett – Ubeat Records / Samurai FM - UK, DE)
 
----------  
ジャンルを超えた音への愛情が感じられます。
目で聞き、耳で見る彼の感性を是非体感してみてください。
 
I feel his love for the sound that exceeds genre.
Please experience his sensibility that can hear by eyes, can watch by ears, by all means.
(Daisuke Tanabe - Burntprogress / Fl Oz / Dancing Turtle / ki / Circulations - JP)
 
----------  
"Skipping" is huge! sampling everyday life sounds is a great idea, much respect to you.
(Onra - Favorite / All City - FR)

----------
It sounds really great, and I'm honest, it's so cool to hear something fresher than beat music (like I do hehhe). I mean music with real samples, with texture and noise around... It's not just a technical love, I love the music in. Really*
(Fulgeance - Musique Large - FR)

----------  
Touch is superdope! deep n detailed n soulful n fresh, diggin this! very cool 
(kidkanevil - First Word Records - UK) 

----------
日常の欠片達が思わぬ表情を見せてくれる、そんな幸福な瞬間にこのサウンドは満ちている。
"Yoshi Horikawa"というフィルターを介して紡がれる数多の音像は、愛によって繋ぎ止められ、
一つのアートへと昇華される。
長い付き合いになりそうです、このサウンド。

Fragments in the daily life show an unexpected expression, These sounds are filled at such a happy moment.
Various audio images that were picked up through the filter "Yosi Horikawa" are tied by his love, and sublimated to one art.
I'll keep company with these sounds for so long.
(MONKEY SEQUENCE.19 - SHOW-TIKU-BAI Records / Wonderful Noise Productions - JP)
 
----------  
極めて日常的で身近な音から、このポップで幻想的な世界への飛躍は、
Yosi Horikawa なりの『絶対音感』あってのことではないでしょうか。
聴く人の日常がこんな音で彩られたらいいなぁ、って思います。

I think the leap from the extremely daily and familiar sounds to this pop and fantastic world depends on Yosi Horikawa's "absolute pitch".
I wish the listener's daily life will be colored by like these sounds. 
(sauce81 - cosmopolyphonic - JP) 

----------  
Your sounds always impress me. Some serious depth and intricacy!
 I'm gonna have to get my hands on "Touch". Hope to get the vinyl when it comes out! Much respect
(Busy - Ubeat Records / Circulations - US) 

----------
"Touch" is the right name for that album.
really personal and deep music that takes us suddenly to a wonderland  where all sounds become friends and storytellers. 
magical and dreamy r the first words that come to our minds!
its also well constructed and the trakks flow from one to another like water.. "Gull" is really our favorite at the moment :)
(1000names - Eklektik records - BG)

----------
I'm really impressed with your sound on your EP. its really fresh and unique keep doin your thing. rspkt.
(Josip Klobučar - 4lux / Eklektik records - HR)

----------
My favourite song of the EP is "Painting", I imagine so much images with this particular sound ! But all the EP is interesting, fresh sounds of nature everywhere in the music, really beautiful to here that,
it reminds me Plaid a bit sometimes. The YoggyOne remix is so huge & funny!
(Kevin Mc Callister - Tits & Acid / Radio Campus Bordeaux - FR)

----------
一昨年、私は”Skipping”という曲と衝撃的な出逢いを果たした。
それは日常にあふれている音の断片のはずなのに、yosiのフィルターを通す事で、
それらが聴いた事も無い”音楽”となって立ち現れる。
私が今まで耳にしてきた音楽のどこにもあてはまらず、もっと先にある新しい次元の音楽だと確信した。
懐かしさと新しさ、切なさと暖かさ。全ての感情が描き出された圧倒的で神秘的な世界観。
yosi horikawaの名前と音楽が世界を驚愕させるのも時間の問題だろう。

Last year, I got a impact encounter with the tune "Skipping".
That's supposed to be fragments of the sound flooding in daily life, when they pass through Yosi's filter, they become a "music" that has never been listened.
"Skipping" can't be applied to any music that I had listened, I was convinced that it is a more progressed music of new dimension.
Nostalgia and freshness, loneliness and warmth, all the emotions were expressed in a overwhelming and mysterious worldview. It is a matter of time that the name and music of Yosi Horikawa will amaze the world.
(Nakamura Takahiro [Collioure] - kuh recording - JP)

----------
YOSIの音楽には手触りがある。丁寧に録音し丹念に磨かれた音素材は、心地良くそして遊び心に満ちている。
何でも無いはずの音がまるで生きているかの様にひとりでに立ち上がり、踊りだす。
彼の特徴とも言えるその音の扱いと世界観は、ファインアート、建築、サウンドスケイプを咀嚼してきた彼のバックボーンを
良く物語っている。
より多くの人々に、その手触りを確かめて欲しい。

YOSI's music has a "touch".
The sound materials courteously recorded and elaborately polished are comfortable, and they are full of the sense of fun.
Sounds that haven't had special meaning stand up automatically like alive, and they start dancing.
His sound treatment and worldview that can be called his characteristic tell his backbone that he has acquired fine art, architecture, soundscape. I want more people to feel this "touch".
(Saburo Ubukata – Composer / INSTALL - JP)

----------
音から質感を感じる。はじめて聴いたときの驚きだった。
眼に見えないが確実に存在するものへの信頼感に満ち溢れている。
日常の何気ない音が彼の感性を通過することで、独特の世界観へと 我々を導いてくれる。
僕の目指す世界がここにもある。

I feel the texture in his sounds : that was the surprise when I listened to his sounds first time. They are full of reliance to the one that exists surely, though they are invisible. When the unconcerned sounds in day life pass through his sensibility, we are led to peculiar worldview.
The world at which I aim is also here.
(yujin HIRASE - Architect / yHa - JP)

----------
ヨシの音楽には世界と対峙する姿勢がそのまま現れている。
ノイズすら楽音に変える感性、否、ノイズゼロ地点から構築される極彩色の伽藍が今日も眩暈を引き起こす。
生半可な覚悟では獲得しえなかった唯一の耳が、あらゆる震えを取り込み、筋肉というメディウムを通して
電子の生命体を生み落とす。
すなわち一生涯生産可能な一品生産の構築物。今日も生命は吹き込まれた。

The stance facing the world has appeared directly in YOSI's music.
The sensibility that can change even noise into tone : The richly colored cathedral that be constructed from zero noise point is made dizzy also today. The only ear that couldn't be acquired in half resolution takes every wave, and bears electric life through the medium of muscle. That is, structures of article production are possible to produce at the whole life.The soul was given into his music.
(Daisuke KAWAJIRI - publishing editor - JP)

----------
自ら録り集めたこの世の様々な音の欠片たちを一つ一つの細胞に変換し
そこに温かさや情熱や懐かしさを織り交ぜて
彼の感性が、ジャンルを超えた新たな自然を生み出してゆく
その音は、肌触りの好いブランケットとなってココロを包み込む
遠くにいてもいつも触れ合ってるようなやさしさと信頼が、彼の音には存在する

Various fragments of the tones in this world he'd recorded by himself
were changed each cells,and he produces them to a new world with the warmth,passion and sweet memories. His music hugs us as a comfortable blancket,and it has the kindhearted trust as we can "touch" even if we live far from each other.
(Kazu Hayashi – organizer - JP)
