reveal hidden patterns

been wanting to do a japanese hip-hop mix for some time now. in my head i always think of japanese hip-hop as some alternate reality to north american hip-hop, like someone over there stepped on a butterfly and they missed the jiggy era and jazz-influenced hip-hop dominated instead.

it came out much shorter than i had hoped. i generally try to have anywhere between 20-40 tracks to choose from when i’m planning out these mixes. it just so happened that the cutting process along with other issues like file compatibility and wanting to not have the same artist more than once left me with only 7 tracks.

it’s still a fun little mix though, i think, and appropriate for this peaceful december weather.
