Japanese electronic music producer Sunao Gonno has been resisting easy categorization since making his debut in the mid-2000s. His sample-free tracks are constructed entirely from his own synthesizers, guitars, and various self-made recordings, and have ranged from minimal techno to warm, bubbling acid house to shimmering ambience. Gonno's debut album, My Existence, appeared on Japanese label W.C. Recordings in 2005. Since then, his have tracks appeared on 12" EPs on labels such as Perc Trax, Re-Active Music, and Merkur Schallplatten, including split records with Shingo Suwa and Salmon. 2008's I Don't Need Competition (Beyond Recordings) and 2011's Acdise #2 (International Feel) were particularly acclaimed, receiving attention from the likes of Laurent Garnier, James Holden, Josh Wink, and others. DFA-associated DJ Tim Sweeney released Gonno's 2013 EP The Noughties on his Beats in Space label. In 2015, Gonno made his debut on Japanese label Endless Flight with The Muddler EP, followed later in the year by his second full-length, Remember the Life Is Beautiful. ~ Paul Simpson
