CASCADE RECORDS is very proud to present “UNDERGROUND JAPAN” podcast 17 mixed by BUGSEED from Tokyo, Japan.
Tokyo is burning!
Hiphop music owes a lot to Japan! A concrete example of this is the classic MPC!! (Originally designed by Roger Linn and manufactured by Akai.) Japan's contribution doesn't stop at the MPC either. MC's and Producer's in the U.S. and Japan have been trading ideas and working together since the early 1990s creating a rich HipHop legacy between the two. And, in the here and now, there are many talented new artists who are building on, refreshing, and contributing to that legacy! We at CR immediately think of producers like ichiro_, Repeat Pattern, RLP, Daisuke Tanabe, Yosi Horikawa, and ...especially our supa hero of the week, BUGSEED!! (We really recommend you download his free beat album, Bohemian Beatnik, released earlier this year.)
This mix you're about to listen to is deep, classic, underground Hiphop -the pure Japanese shit for that pure HipHop experience! Only exclusive tracks, the real REAL, and we like that!
