All Sources: Towa’s Pieces

Like many independent electronic producers in the Internet age, Towa stitches together shards of sounds — whether it be a vocal sample, a bass slap or something else — into music all their own. Pieces highlights the Japanese artist’s approach to this, slotting Towa next to the like of In The Blue Shirt and Soleil Soleil, who similarly construct body-moving music from parts of other songs. Voices get smooshed into the beat on the squiggle house of “Broken Pieces” while a familiar blast of sunshine serves as a key component of “Summer Part 2.” Towa moves from crushing fun to zippier moments, but Pieces ends up a consistently solid listen.
