Midnight In Tokyo

About this item

Over the course of the last two decades, Toshiya Kawasaki has continually worked to introduce the world to a better class of electronic music, whether it be house, techno or ambient on Mule Musiq or weirder-strands of club tackle on Endless Flight. Now, the Mule family launch their latest stable, Studio Mule, taking a brief break from the club with a more diverse musical policy. In reaction to the recent appropriation of Japanese music by Western labels, Studio Mule's first release is a compilation of rare Japanese disco, boogie and soul, so far untouched by the Youtube algorithims. 
Selecting tracks which they thought perfectly soundtracked a night in Tokyo, they arrived at a setlist as suited to home listening as club play, with a wonderful tone of City Pop running throughout. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Mule's latest sub-section, Studio Mule opens its account with a great thirteen track selection of Japanese disco, boogie, soul and city pop, bringing something a little different to the current trend for Japanese music. I'm in, Ryan Horsebeach is in, how about you?
