So, I decided to write sth about japanese hip-hop producers, also tagged as chillout or simply jazz hop. The best way to present these I have already heard is to put them into charts, I guess.. well here we go:
Undoubtedly this guy is a king out there. Two solos released: Metaphorical Music and Modal Soul as well as two compilation albums - Hydeout Productions First & 2nd Collection. Make sure to check out also two Samurai Champloo OSTs: Departure (with Fat Jon) and Impression (with Force of Nature & Fat Jon).
2. Uyama Hiroto
You might already heard his name from some Nujabes' featurings. One, just brilliant solo album A Son Of The Sun; two guest appearances only, but you will come to like it.
