"In 2020 the first release in guides, a new publishing initiative set up by outlines owner Pawel "Paide" Dunajko, was released. guides is intended to be a label less burdened by formal requirements but - like outlines - still trying to present the most interesting and innovative music at 160 bpm.

The second tape in the guides catalog is the result of a collaboration with Japanese producer otomoni. The Tokyo-based sound artist owns the Minzoku Tapes label, where his original productions have mainly been released.

otomoni's "super u" tape consists of nine tracks for which Chicago footwork is the starting point. However, the Japanese producer creates his own individual version of this genre, using such compositional techniques as sound design, field recording and musique concrete. is extremely rich and characterized by a multitude of details. The rhythmic layer is non-obvious, driven by a microcosm of sound particles and melodies.

The very beginning of the release ("mizurizu") presents before us evocative images of some undiscovered anime world, in which a delicate impressionistic narrative merges in the finale with noise blurring details. tension with a melodic intro that, after a while, launches into a footwork groove. "kenka" is a sweet miniature with echoes of reggaeton rhythm. Finishing the A side of the cassette "misago" is a futuristic minimal footwork set on an ear- Piercing synthetic sound, around which surprising noises are lit up.

In the opening B-side title track "super u" otomoni continues to create his sound world. It's transformed vocal samples, expressive and juicy rhythmics, on the background of which unexpectedly appears the sour sound of Roland's 303. "ooree" takes the listener to a different, but equally surprising corner of otomoni's world full of plasticity and colors.In "amenoi" the listener lands in the middle of a jungle of sounds creating an unreal scaffolding for an alternative reality.From its very beginning "mikudro" fits into the narration started in "amenoi", but it tries to burst this created structure with a vibrating stroboscope of sounds. Seemingly chaotic percussions create a new physics of music. The album's closing "akumu" begins with a vast looped drone, against which ritual simple vocalizations are sung. After a while the drone and the voice are joined by other sounds of a new world coming to life.

otomoni's music has an extraordinary gift for illustrating alternative realities. However, this does not happen with a flourish, pathos or overload of meanings. The sounds he uses are characterized by subtlety and minimalism of expression. its basic form is a musical genre which is supposed to accompany the movements of dancers competing with each other. otomoni's Footwork is music detached from this tradition, but using the components of this genre to create a completely new reality.
