Feist

This is from a few years back, girl called Leslie Feist. Might recognise her track Mushaboom from a particular men's fragrance commercial. Very nice album. Personal favourite is Leisure Suite.

Click the artwork and you'll be able to listen to the full album for free at Last.fm.

Inverse Cinematics Strike Again...

Iv been a huge cinematics fan after they dropped this juicy bit of broken goodness back in '03. Its basically two german guys doing their stuff (stick with it, it gets better as it goes on!)



But, onto why im making this post. This is 'Dont Give Up' from their album 'Passin Through'




Inverse Cinematics - Passin Through

We've had a Beatdoctor, now we got a Beatchild.

Slakah the Beatchild to be exact. Nice sounding stuff from this Canadian dude who produces most if not all of his own stuff. If you get a chance check him out on Myspace and BBE Music. The album Soul Movement Vol. 1 is out now I believe and features Enjoy ya Self which is a real nice track.

Over the water from Japan...

...Is Korea. These guys are korean :)

I stumbled across this track once while hunting down a track for the original ogre... forgot all about it until today, when going through my 'unsorted downloads' folder of mp3 collection.

"Clazziquai" is Hangul for "ClassicJazzGroove". Its a really nice track. Im a real rhodes fiend anyway, this isnt groundbreakingly different from anything, but i really enjoy it.

Suppose it helps that im a huge reel people and incognito fan.

The voyage into the sun...

Sleep Walker released this a couple years back. Nice little album, but only 8 tracks. 8 nice tracks though. Steve's already mentioned Hajime Yoshizawa, well he plays the piano for this quartet. Album features Bembe Segue and Yukimi Nagano. Some nice jazz.

Yukimi Nagano

Right so I was going to wait a bit to get onto Yukimi Nagano, but I just heard a track she featured on for Ge-ology. That tipped me over the edge and I can't wait, gotta share it. So below is a playlist of tracks that I love so far that feature Yukimi. Seriously nice.


Jafrosax

Just recently been introduced to Yukimi Nagano (thanks for the heads up Dale)! Gonna get some of her stuff with Little Dragon up here soon enough. Anyways, after doing a little digging, I found that she'd collaborated with this group Jafrosax, a Japan based nujazz/broken beat outfit who are sometimes produced by Vikter Duplaix. Had to check them out obviously, and first track I stumbled upon was this. Instant gold I tells ya! It's called Rollin'. Enjoy

A Son of the Sun

Uyama Hiroto - A Son of the Sun, definitely worth a listen. Yeah it's that nice I don't need to say anymore!!

Yeah yeah, I'm still addicted...

But despite the fact that the artist is Japanese, it's still a nice track. Jun Seba aka Nujabes feat. Terry Callier. It's called Ordinary Joe.
