This is the second offering in Sonic360’s newly conceived Beatwave series. This is a taste of Japanese underground club pop. It’s eclectic dance music with all the flavour of hip and cool. There’s a range of different styles on this compilation ranging from Big Beat to Deep House to Bossanova-inspired 2-Step. There’s a lot of different genres all merged with a Japanese quirkiness to make all the tracks pretty original and unique. The first half of the album is more culturally experimental and uses a lot of pop influence to give it a
cute charm. The latter half is a bit deeper and soulful. What’s sure is ‘Beatwave Japan’ is different so for those looking for something quirky with a touch of class will relate to this. The pop influence makes it easy listening and non offensive whilst some of the deeper moments could sink into your sub conscience. Sonic360 have created progressive laid back electro-pop with a distinct Japanese character. If you like the sound of that, listen to it.
