Bubbling beneath the surface in its own little world, the music of Japanese city pop has long been something select collectors and DJs have been drawn to since its boom in the 1970s. A weird yet perfect mix of groove, pop, disco and moody R&B generally make up most of what you hear within city pop. At a time when Japan was seeing extraordinary economic growth through exports and trade, the music that came out of that era was smooth, fun, light, and filled with a progressive essence that match the environment that birthed it. In recent years city pop is seeing a wider reach and resurgence due in part to stellar releases like this compilation from Light In The Attic. This LP has some of the most notable artists that contributed to the city pop sound and has been tough to come by. Add some flavor to your collection with this very, very wavy 2xLP set of gems!
