The Mariana Trench Sound
Japanese City Pop Special
This week we're delving into all Japanese Citypop. So expect plenty of sweet and corny jazz and funk infused pop hits from the likes of Tatsuro Yamashita, Mariya Takeuchi, Makoto Matushita and my all time fave Haroumi Hosono.
Harry is also the focus of sampling as an art when we explore his song Firecracker which he made as part of the amazing Yellow Magic Orchestra. We chart its use from De La Soul to Todd Terje AND of course as you all know its role in J-Lo vs Mariah Carey beef.
Starts the show as always with varied nice bits: from local group Lylo, to an album of Warm earth music for plants...and the people who love them and that super Geoffrey Landers compilation released on Music From Memory.17:00 - 19:00
