Chikashi's Lounge mix Vol.1

Chikashi's Lounge mix Vol.1

Playing tracks by

Tosca, Miyazawa, The Beatconductor and Letta Mbulu.

This is one of the first DJ mixes I received from good friend (who also happens to be one of my fav DJs) & music enthusiast Chikashi Nishiwaki...a veteran Japanese DJ who's previously played alongside Kyoto Jazz Massive & UFO - & frequently hosts esteemed selectors such as Gilles Peterson, Nicola Conte, Toshio Matsurra, Ryota Nozaki (Jazztronik) & bands such as Osaka Monorail with his musician wife Emi at their lovely cafe/bar - 'Tree Cafe' (http://www.tree-cafe.com/p/about.html) on the South West Coast of Japan - a small seaside town called Tsuruga/Fukui Prefecture (2 hrs below Kanazawa & 3hrs Shinkansen ride from Kyoto or Osaka). Chikashi made his way to Oz in the early 2000's where he connected with Dr Ravi (Sunnyside Up) & guested at many a Cutucada session throwing down his eclectic mix of bossa+breaks+jazz for the dance floor! He's regularly returned the exchange hosting Brisbane/Aussie artists Ravi, Julien Love, Sampology, Peter G and yours truly...enjoy this brilliant blend

Si Roberto! Some Classic gems in there. He's also just finished an amazing baleric/nu jazz remix of Kerbside Collection with his wife Emi adding some vocals (in Japanese) to be released on Legere recordings this Feb/March!
