Ed Motta – City Pop Vol. 2

Ed Motta - City Pop Vol. 2

Brazilian musician Ed Motta compiles a mix of cool Japanese “City Pop”.

Japanese representations of Western music always add a new edge and come out sounding better in ways. City Pop is musical menagerie of styles, taking from J-Pop, soft rock, AOR, and bits of funk and boogie. Ed Motta compiled a fine mix showcasing the cool vibes of City Pop. Any producers with a keen ear will hear some potential samples in this.
