Broken Haze - Vital Error

'Vital Error' is the follow up full-length to Keisuke Ito/Broken Haze's electronic/glitch debut, 'raid system'.  Just like said predecessor it features a few remixed works of his own tracks by other artists (like Machinedrum), a slice of some futuristic hip-hop/rap cameos, and predominantly an instrumental/electronic/dance foray into the future.  Some of the sounds and loops this dude does are unlike anything I've heard, and while his first album had more blasting bass, this seems to highlight more of shifting synths and effects.  Personal fave so far is "Raid System Tokyo", or the opening track "Loading", but all of this is nice.  Expect newness in 2015.
