Lab Overview

"Following the recent success of the Tokyo Dreaming compilation, Wewantsounds comes with another compelling set, this time compiled by city pop expert DJ Notoya who has dug the rich Nippon Columbia catalog to bring a breezy selection of funky gems. Keen to emulate the music created in the US by their American counterparts, Japanese musicians came with their own blend of funk, boogie and soul that has come to be known as city pop. The selection on Tokyo Glow is full of such gems and starts with 'Kimugare' a relaxed, mid-tempo track by Kumi Nakamura, famous actress who only recorded one album in 1980 for Columbia. The set continues and flows effortlessly with the sunshine grooves of Miyuki Maki, Hatsumi Shibata and cult keyboard player Hiroshi Sato before the pace starts going faster and funkier with New Generation Company, Kengo Kurozumi -- with his superb boogie, 'Juggler' -- and one of the queens of the genre, Hitomi 'Penny' Tohyama with 'Tuxedo Connection'. Tokyo Glow showcases the diversity and specificity of Japanese city pop during the late '70s and '80s." - Wewantsounds
