Soulful Sundays / Woodblue – North Letter (2007)

This week on Soulful Sundays, the 2007 album from Woodblue – North Letter.

Wonderful downtempo album, along the vein of the same kind of people I’ve been posting as of late – DJ Okawari, Nujabes, Michita, and the rest of them. Take a listen, and I’ll probably be posting North Source next week, which is the other half of this album. The stream is below, enjoy!

Soulful Sundays / Uyama Hiroto – A Son of the Sun (2008)

This week on Soulful Sundays, I am showcasing the 2008 album from Uyama Hiroto – A Son of the Sun.

What an album. Uyama Hiroto does a lot of work with Nujabes and has a very similar style to him – therefore, I instantly loved it the minute I started listening to it. Give it a shot, let me know what you think in the comments, and as per usual, the stream is below. Enjoy!

Soulful Sundays / DJ Okawari – Mirror (2009)

This week on Soulful Sundays, I am featuring the 2009 album from DJ Okawari – Mirror.

Because I’ve been feeling a whole lot of piano lately, you can see that I’m making quite a bit of a run with these fantastic Japanese hip-hop influenced DJs. DJ Okawari is no exception, definitely along the lines of Nujabes and Smooth J, I really hope you enjoy this. The stream is below!

Smooth J - Smooth Sound Collection Vol 1

This is a fantastic album. Smooth J is a very talented pianist hailing from Japan and covers all sorts of genres. Definitely reminiscent of the ShinSight Trio and Nujabes, you’d better check it out! The stream is below, as per usual, so I hope you enjoy!

Ozomatli - Don't Mess With The Dragon

Very different direction from me today, just because! Interesting album, and I had never really heard anything like this before, but very latin-inspired music that seems to cross a lot of genres. Hope you enjoy, the stream is below. Happy Thanksgiving!
