Love, Peace & Trance


Hosono’s Non-Standard imprint helped nurture the rise of hip Japanese exports Pizzicato Five and in the ‘90s, Hosono acted as impresario (and maybe even swinging love guru) for Love, Peace & Trance, a vocal group featuring Mimori Yusa, Chakra’s Mishio Ogawa, and dip in the pool’s Miyako Koda. The album is firmly in the post-Orb world of woozy electronics, and Hosono offers up a serene, angelic take on ambient house. Trance-inducing 808 patterns (sometimes swapped out with tabla), body-melting chords, and Koda’s airy vocals make tracks like “Mammal Mama” and “Hasu Kriya” are some of Hosono’s dreamiest productions of the era.
