  • New Rap Track by monyusode Inspired by 1926 Short Story ‘The Izu Dancer’

    20.October.2021 | MUSIC

    Female duo monyusode just released their new track With no ODORIKO on October 8, 2021. The song is available on the iTunes store and major streaming sites. 

     

     

    The song was inspired by the 1926 short story The Izu Dancer by Nobel Prize-winning Japanese writer Yasunari Kawabata. Kawabata was the first Japanese writer to win the award in 1968 and the short story follows a young boy from Tokyo traveling to Izu on a lonely summer holiday. On this trip, he repeatedly crosses paths with five traveling musicians who bring joy back to his life. 

     

    Comment from monyusode

    “With no ODORIKO is a song that combines a traditional enka-style melody with modern rap. Be sure to pay attention to the lyrics!”

    “The music video tells the story of a traveler who meets and falls in love with a dancer. It was shot in the town of Murata in Miyagi prefecture and features this rare and incredibly beautiful scenery. We hope you’ll enjoy the casting!”

    The track 3 Minutes 29 Seconds is the first single featuring Shinoda on vocals after former vocalist wowaka passed away in 2019. This remix marks the 19th remixed release to be featured on the Sakura Chill Beats YouTube channel. N3WPORT is an American DJ and music producer who specializes in future bass and has worked with acts like Gryffin, Slushii, and Tiesto. 

     

    “Remixing this song was a fun challenge. I really enjoyed the original track by hitorie, though it’s very different from the music I usually listen to and make. I tried to include as much progressive rock style as I could, and it was interesting to blend my style with theirs. As a musician, I love all genres, and I’m super grateful for this chance to broaden my horizons,” N3WPORT commented. 

     

    The song reached #1 on the iTunes dance chart the day it began streaming, October 8. 86 -Eighty-Six- has just returned for a second season. 

     

  • RADWIMPS Announce New Album Title, FOREVER DAZE

    18.October.2021 | MUSIC

    Rock band RADWIMPS is celebrating the 15th anniversary of their major-label debut, and the details of their upcoming album have been released! FOREVER DAZE, releasing on November 23, 2021, was created and produced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The album will be filled with a number of collaborations and experimental tracks, as the group continues to take on new musical challenges. 

     

    The band’s first original album in three years will contain 14 tracks including Natsu no Sei, Iron Feather, and TWILIGHT, revealed earlier this year as the commemorative track for the 1000th episode of One Piece. Other included tracks include SUMMER DAZE 2021, Utakata-Uta, and an orchestral version of Nekojarashi

     

    The cover art for FOREVER DAZE has also been revealed and was created in an extremely unique way. Contemporary/AI artist Yuma Kishi utilized a database of portraits featuring 15-year-old boys and girls from a variety of backgrounds to generate an obscured AI-generated image of an individual transcending race and gender. The finished product symbolizes the current state of RADWIMPS, as they continue to evolve and change, never comfortable with just one sound or theme.

    The band’s performance at Yokohama Arena will be included in the 15th Anniversary Box and will be available on either DVD or Blu-ray.
