Classic Album Sundays Exploring Japan with Audio-Technica EP 2 // 21-03-21
Tune in at midday today for part two of our four-part series exploring four classic Japanese albums with some of our favourite DJs and radio hosts from Japan. The series, presented by Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, in association with Audio-Technica, features in-depth conversations with Mari* Kimura, Shuya Okino, Dazzle Drums and Toshio Matsuura. Each guest presents their favourite albums by a Japanese artist and we hear the story behind the albums, as well as each guest's personal connection to it.
Our guest for episode two of Classic Album Sundays Exploring Japan with Audio-Technica is Kyoto's Shuya Okino. Renowned as one of Japan's best DJs and producers of electronic, jazz and dance music, Shuya has chosen Kimiko Kasai's 'Butterfly' as his classic album. Join us as we hear how a unique combination of Kimiko and Herbie Hancock came together to produce an album of rare funk, grace and timeless beauty.
