    Yokohama, Japan — March 12th, 2012 — One year ago on Match 11th, Japan was hit with an earthquake that generated a tsunami, devastating the country.

    “Fuku” is a song produced by i-dep and featuring the (English) words of Shing02. Together they made a song that explores the feeling of that sudden tragedy and that looks to uplift Japan and help the healing. i-dep and HearJapan are offering it as a free download that also includes a lyric sheet in both English and Japanese.

    i-dep is the wildly popular group led by Hiroshi Nakamura. Their music is based in house but crosses over into a diverse range of genres and have cracked the top 5 of the oricon charts in Japan. Shing02 is one of the most respected Japanese hip hop rappers in the underground scene of Japan. Having grown up in both Japan and America, he is able to rap fluently in both languages and has an intense following in both countries.

    Check out the free download of “Fuku” now and help spread the uplifting feelings…

    it's been a long time since I've written anything here. long time and a lot of tracks played -_^.

    Lately, my musical taste gets a little wild. I mean, one moment I'm dancing around to Ryohei or melody., not to mention JE boys, and then I turn to likes of i-dep, toe, Bahashishi or Uchida Yuki. and that's song after song, in a crazy musical merry-go-round kind of style.

    However, is it bad?

    No, not really.

    Uchida is my newest discovery, and really, too bad I only have one album of hers, as she certainly deserves more attention. I originally downloaded it because one of the tracks was written and back-upped by Chara (and it sure sounds as something C-sama would compose). But then, I found out I like the whole CD a lot. Well, maybe last three tracks are not that hilarious, but that's probably simply because the others are so good.

    so, new lady for my Great Japanese Singing Girls collection was found. The pack is growing, as Shibasaki Kou continues to show one can be good at both acting and singing. …

    It was about 11 o'clock AM this morning. A very early for my standards! The apartment buzzer sounded off like a bomb! I look out the window to see if it was the tali ban coming for sweet revenge! AH NO! It was really the Canada Post Man!!
    My sudden maniacal fear was replaced with sheer happiness! :D It took me maybe 5 seconds to become dead sleepy to fully awake. Seeing as I had nothing appropriate to be seen in public with, it was yet another panic search and conquer for some PANTS!
    Then I uttered some random words into the telecom and sped out the door!

    I was reunited with my packaged CD in the lobby! I was a little confused as to how the post man got in as these doors are never opened without a key.... cause I live in a prison? WELL~ HE WAS GLOWING AFTER ALL... so that may be the reason.

    I'll tell you though, I was so excited to have my CD that I nearly peed myself trying to open it! :D

    I'm really excited about this! I remember slamming Avex last November about the RAM RIDER 12" promo vinyl. Oh, my lord! I couldn't believe I was denied the remixes! THE リミックス!!!

    Well, it seems they have a change of heart. (They got my threatening letter!! YAY! Cloverbell STYLE! ^_^)

    I'm especially looking forward to the Wall 5 and Sugiurumn remixes. Everything else is just gravy. The only downside is the wait: album to be released in April! I want it NOW!

    At least I can take solace in the fact that nirgilis has a remix album coming out tomorrow! And why is this relevant? More RAM RIDER! (Oh, my god. …
