    v his other projects (Perfume, Kyary, Coltemonikha...etc), Meg (obviously), Shinichi Osawa/Mondo Grosso, Ram Rider, Ryukyudisko (some songs), Aira Mitsuki...actually, the related artists-section is sort of semi-correct this time when it comes to recommending artists that might please Nakata fanboys/girls as well...

    Undoubtedly, Nakata's brain is the most valuable thing on Terra right now.

    @Ryncol: A female rapper who goes by RoxXxan used to contribute raps to stock vocal packs. Nakata happened to use hers not once, but twice (on the Time is Now and later in Love or Lies).

    I'm so digging their old electro/lounge stuff. Absolutely amazing, especially L.D.K. and Nexus-2060.
