Back in the mists of 2007, when the beats sound was still obscure, likeminded souls were finding each other across the globe (Teebs and Jackhigh) and DJs like Alex Nut and Jay Scarlett rewarded the curious with treasure.
Japan had its own outpost: Dai Kurihara's excellent Circulations released the classic compilation New Worlds in 2008 featuring Dorian Concept, Sa-Ra, Mono/Poly and more. http://www.freshselects.net/newworlds.
Also on that compilation was a huge collab between Guilty Simpson and elusive Japanese production trio Super Smoky Soul. Besides a great album (http://www.junodownload.com/products/cycling/1303937-02/) and a 12" not much more was heard, and it was when dropping them into my Electronic Explorations mix that I decided to hunt them down for a Shortcast.
SSS's Re:ill came back with this fab 100% Japanese collection, a long overdue update. And good news there is new material on the way.
