MLYT Japanese Club Jazz Madness
August 11, 2010 1:26 PM   Subscribe

Mid-week pick-me-up, straight outta Japan: Soil & "Pimp" Sessions, live in 2009 at the annual North Sea Jazz Festival. If those live clips are a bit noisy, check out Pop Korn, My Foolish Heart~Crazy on Earth~, and My Foolish Heart ~Foolish in Mind~. And for a cool-down, try Welsh producer Doc Daneeka's bassy slowed down house version of Pop Korn (image source: Fotos+Mono, from the Chilean artist Relleno De Mono).

Soil & "Pimp" Sessions on Discogs, MySpace, and 5-track sampler on SoundCloud, plus SC more search hits.

Doc Daneeka, who took his name from a character in the novel Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, on Discogs, MySpace and SoundCloud.

You might like Breakestra if you dig Soil & Pimp. I know I do.

From what I've heard, Breakestra to be more of a funk group who plays a lot of amazing live breaks (see: Live Mix Pt. 1, which is a about 40 minutes of one funky break after another).

They also did music from the anime Michiko to Hatchin, which has an excellent soundtrack throughout...

Interesting, I thought Pop Korn sounded similar to some Yoko Kanno / Seatbelts tracks from Cowboy Bebop - crazy upbeat jazz that could match well to a frantic scene.
