Label of the week:

As a laidback finish to this hot Sunday afternoon we present you the japanese hip-hop/soul label Circulations.

Dai-San Kurihara, the label manager, has put together an amazing blend of artist and styles. Among others Circulation has put out records by the 80ies inspired french beatmaker Onra (The Big Payback), California's Manuel Moran (a.ka. Afta-1), experimental japanese beatmaker Daisuke Tanabe from Japan and old Beatheart's favourite swedish soul act Hygher Baby (Pure P & Melo).

Here's one of our favourite tracks from Daisuke Tanabe's latest album "Before I forget" that dropped earlier this year:

Daisuke Tanabe - Vestige

The Big Payback is Byron The Aquarius on keyboards and Fender Rhodes, Onra on the MPC. They met on Myspace exchanged music files over the net, worked with a few vocal artists, and produced two albums so far. This track is from their self entitled first album:

The Big Payback - Dance with me
