When I was living in Japan, I somehow came across this songstress named Takako Minekawa, and I especially like her track called Cloud Forest (and remember once hearing a really good remix¬† of it by, I think, Kid Koala - if you’ve got it, let me know).

Takako Minekawa - Black Forest

Enjoy it, then befriend her on MySpace and know that hers is the voice that you hear saying ‘Playstation’ at the end of the all the commercials for that system. How’s that for trivia?

More from Japan on 199X here.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’ve got a ton of pictures from Japan that I’ve never really shown anyone.

Here are some from the Tokyo Auto Salon that my friend Datablend took me to. Apparentally it is the world’s biggest customized car show. That means that there are no stock cars, everyone single one has been modified in some way.

It also means that there are a ton of car babes.

To continue with the Japanese theme, here are some tracks that Takeuchi sent me. I really dig that Kills one because I listened to them a lot while I was living in Japan.

The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful (Hoshina Anniversary Remix)

Cut Copy - Heart on Fire (Hoshina Anniversary Remix)

Hoshina Anniversary - House Trance On Love

Digitalism - Take Away (Hoshina Anniversary Remix

Gambate!

A few years ago I spent some time living in Japan. I’m going to start posting some of my pictures from those days here because no one has ever really seen them before.

Japanese home

I should start studying Japanese again - its a beautiful language.

Here are a couple of tracks with Akira Kosemura. I don’t know if he is popular in Japan, but I like these songs and they seem to go with the pictures. Sorry if they’re a bit of a departure from what I normally post, but that’s just the mood I’m in.

Dom Mino - Scarlett (Akira Kosemura Remix)

Akira Kosemura - Garden

Haruka Nakamura - Nord

Find more Haruka here and more Akira here.

The Akira Kosemura remix courtesy of everyone’s favorite Lemur, the other two from Slowcoustic.
