In 1998 in Tokyo the DJ event [SEARCHING] started, inspired by the rare groove collections of worldwide DJ's. The 45's in this mix were chosen as a representation of the 45 DJ culture in Japan that developed since the 1990's.
Okayama Prefecture based DJs the Funky Daitoryou and DJ Hysa return with their second mix on K.O.L. Improvised entirely at their regular spot in Okayama the 301 Bar, the two present a range of groovy sounds, from opener Marlena Shaw, to Japanese legend Nobukaza Takemura, up to the present with D’Angelo, and over to Jamaica with one by reggae keyboard master Jackie Mitoo. We’re happy to have back the Funky Daitoryi and DH Hysa with an all groove mix straight from the amazing 301 Bar in Okayama.
