J-pop

J-pop (ジェイポップ “jeipoppu”), an abbreviation for Japanese pop, is a musical genre that entered the musical mainstream of Japan in the 1990s. Modern J-pop has its roots in 1960s music, such as The Beatles, and replaced kayōkyoku (“Lyric Singing Music,” a term for Japanese pop music from the 1920s to the 1980s) in the Japanese music scene. The term was coined by the Japanese media to distinguish Japanese music from foreign music, and now refers to most Japanese popular music. Edit this Artist photo: ZARD

    Someone recommend me some J-Pop with like a deep-house, sunken bass, early 2000s, lounge type of feel. I know I've heard it before I just can't pin down any artists.

    Good j-pop is better than k-pop, but there isn't a lot of good j-pop.

    Wa Creans is Japanese music label. http://wacreans.com/ I recommend my label artists. Sounds like: abstract, soundscape, trip hop, jazz, Japanese picturesque scenery & rhythm. Relax and enjoy.

    @bawitback How is 'j-pop racist? It just denotes a genre defined by a particular location. It's like saying that 'britpop' or 'Hungarian Folk Dance' is racist as well.
