Yeah bro this is worth having a playlist for.
Youtube understands me man. This shit was recommended for me based on the shit I was already listening to.
Saving this for the next D3 session. Overall I like their jazz a lot more than western stuff, any genre that has experimental/improv with asians is always going to be more refined but less innovative. Since innovation in art tends to be a bad thing right now this gives the east an edge.
I'd say you can look to Bill Evans as an example of the source material for the kind of western jazz the Japanese are good at refining.
Hong Kong has a lot of stuff like this too, their music scene is big but mostly self contained and isn't penetrated as much by the global internet music culture. In the US every little band is on bandcamp/soundcloud under a "label" (just a collection of artists) and they all force themselves to sound alike, creates a lot of copycats.
Can we include mid 90's - early 2000's Japanese composers who fused classical with electronic?
Hell yeah we can. This is a pretty wide category.
Does this count?
Yeah buddy we getting wild
This could be posted anywhere but I'll just kick it here. In other news Japanese women in the 80s had particularly attractive clothes and hair.
MM you need to scour bandcamp and soundcloud too, I'm noticing a lot more music isn't making it to YT since they're so crazy about infringements. Foreign groups especially don't like it because YT will block THEIR OWN music to other countries, I think record companies have YT in a deathgrip now and there are automated sweeping ban waves going out.
Maybe I can find Yuji Ohno's Cosmos album. It's my white whale at this point since youtube blocked the one I've been listening to for a year. Prepare for some funky guitar
A lot of great Japanese bass players. A youtube commentator said the bass is the lead and the guitar is the backing, all you need to know really.
If you like that I got the full album, lot of surprising creative stuff, don't be lulled into a sense of complacency by some of the more pop type numbers
Speaking of great bass, this is my favorite from the Yoshida brothers, something posted earlier, hell the bass carries this song
Jap PS1/PS2 games are nothing but this genre
XBC was the swan song of the genre, came out much later but you can tell the influence
Separate names with a comma.
