Unusual, Diverse J-Pop, Funk & Jazz Vinyl LPs From Japan Now In

Anyone watching youtube for rare cuts of Pop, Funk & Jazz will have noticed an attention on Japanese artists, which has only intensified in recent years, with a belated City Pop boom coming thirty years after it flourished in Japan and wider Asia. On a recent buying trip we picked up some gems by local artists, which we’ve noticed have started to become more & more sought after, with local prices reflecting this. We think that this nascent interest will really start to take off as the internet brings more and more of these undiscovered treasures to a wider audience; making this a great point to jump on.
