I swear the coli is a weird place. Thought I was the only one that had indigo-la-end and Polka-dot-Stingray in my playlists.:ohhh:





Early on, I gravitated to Indigo-la-end and Kawatani’s other group “Gesu no kiwami wo tome” cause their stuff lacked a lot of complex metaphors and sht when I was picking up JPnese. Easy to digest. Nothing ticks you off more than learning a new language with a bunch of esoteric musicians. :pachaha:









i really like Melt Bitter and especially this track. It has a chill r&B vibe to it, kinda like the stripped down stuff RB used to do in the 90s.:whoo:


It’s catchy too. Probably cause of all the repetition. “From here, your the only one, only one, that does not change, I’m always by your side right until your warmth last forever forever” . A breh got this line stuck in his head.:ohlawd::whew::wow:.







So, I’ll see you on those two tracks and I’ll raise you on Syrup and Yogee New Waves:jawalrus:



This one’s by Sirup. His best track, and currently my wake up alarm tone. Unfortunately dude was a one hit wonder, so that’s it for him.:francis:



Yogee New Wave

Off topic, but I think this thread just messed up my algorithms. Now I’m getting ads for “mochi” and assorted JPnese candy in the sidebar of theColi. Internet thinks I’m Asian now.:mjlol:

Right. Small world out here.:whoo:
Glad you liked the tracks. I’ll be sure to drop by this thread periodically to chime in with more. :salute:







As for Japanese, I had posted on here a while back that my parents kept random language tapes, text books, etc around the house from the various pursuits they had tried/given up on in life. I consumed them like any other media. I’d say I found the JP stuff in middle school. Although, I never got serious about it until high school (7-ish years ago) when we had a Japanese exchange student come to our school. This has a longer story to it if you are interested.....:patrice:



. So, basically JPnese dude joined our soccer team. As an American high school, our soccer team sucked because our funding went to the real money-makers, bBall and football. Admin just started soccer to keep players from other sports fit/healthy during the spring. But Unlike us, JPnese dude came from a nation that consumed soccer ; and he was damn good at it too. So we all bonded with the dude cause he could single handedly win us games even as a mid fielder ( our strikers sucked also) . :russ:



‘The language part kicks in because we needed a way to communicate strategy on the field without the other team understanding. We used JPnese on the field the way Navajo code talkers did in the war. (You see the irony?) . And as the only one with a background in the stuff, I served as a liaison between JPnese dude and our American squad.


So I could direct him by yelling, “ hidari ni ite, ore wa chance wo tsukuru !!!” or simply give a play-by-play of exactly what we’d do while the other team was oblivious.:wow:



Beyond the soccer pitch, the exchange student also plugged grammar and cultural gaps in my JPnese. For that, I’ll always be grateful to Takagi-kun.


So what’s your story M.M. ? What peaked your interest in JMusic? I’m assuming you got some background in JPnese...:lupe:

Yeah, please don't hesitate to share tracks you like in this thread


:russ: that's a dope story

There isn't much to mine. I grew up with anime on the television :yeshrug: So I connected very early with the songs which carried the stories I'd watch. The fact that there is a significant part of this type of japanese music that seems influenced by RnB sounds also helps. I feel like a lot of japanese music got soul to it, and I usually don't get that from non-black music

I can't speak more than a few words of Japanese and count to five haha
