    I'm going to the Rising Sun Rock music festival here in August, it's only Japanese musicians so I made a couple of 8track mixes to help out the friends I'm going with. It's a pretty varied selection if you want a sampler of contemporary Japanese music: jazz to jazz-punk to electro-pop to retro-punk to electro-punk to downbeat-electro and all that noise in between.

    I deleted my last mix, because it was rushed and not very good. I'll make another one tonight, containing a couple of the same tracks.

    But in the meantime, I made you guys a hip-hop mix!

    Jeff Zero's Whitechapel Hip-Hop Mix

    (edit: Oh hey, a couple of THESE were in my last mix, too)

    Saul Williams- Black History Month
    Art-ish hip-hop with production by Trent Reznor

    P.O.S.- I Play The Matador (Redo version)
    Aggressive punk rock-influenced (P.O.S. is a member of Building Better Bombs) alt-rap. I wish more of his tracks had this kind of kick to them. It fits his style and his roots quite well.

    Grand Buffet- Dark Autumn
    Using 'hip-hop' loosely here, but it's what they go by. Not sure if they're taking themselves seriously or not, but it works either way.

    Lady Sovereign- Fiddle With The Volume
    Well, it was either her or mc chris, and I'm not sure how I feel about him these days.

    Doomtree- Kid Gloves
    P.O.S. makes another appearance here. Alternative rap collective from Minneapolis. Pretty sure this album is right behind Method Man and Redman's 'Blackout!' on my list of favorite hip-hop/rap albums.

    The Coup- My Favorite Mutiny
    Featuring Black Thought and Talib Kweli. I wish The Coup were a better group, because the handful of good songs they have are really, really goddamned good. ....I feel that way about too many bands I listen to.

    Busdriver- Imaginary Places
    C'mon, how can you not like this?

    RJD2- Ghostwriter
    Hip-hop instrumentals. This dude makes catchy stuff.

    Damn fine list, Jeffzero. Except for the Lady Sovereign, she makes me want to plunge icepicks into my ears. But RJD2 and Saul Williams are class acts.

    Hip-hop mix is awesome... but got even more so when I realized Talib Kweli is on that Coup song.
    In keeping w/ the theme- word, son.

    the summer mix oh-nine.
    it's not particularly summery, but it is upbeat. so that's something.

    In And Out (Of The Woods).

    Vaguely woodsy music.
    It felt right at 3:20 this morning.
    I like it anyway.
