Inspired by LA Sound, American funk and AOR, Japanese artists realised their own visions of popular music in the 70s and 80s, which enjoyed great success in Japan and in recent years also found more and more followers in Europe and America. Music that convinces with great arrangements, musicianship and quality and makes you dream of cruising through the neon-lit Tokyo of the 80s.
“Tokyo Dreams Volume 2 – Japanese City Pop, Funk and Rare Grooves” invites you to take this imaginary journey. Our playlist features artists such as Raji, Spectrum, Yumi Murata, Junko Ohashi, Mariya Takeuchi, Anri, Miki Matsubara, Bread & Butter, Minako Yoshida and many more.
