Product description

Product Description

Lying in the deep south of Japan, the Ryukyu Islands (the
biggest of which is Okinawa) have absorbed and embraced foreign cultures to
create their own distinctive music. Today it's no different, as Ryukyu
Underground transform and transport original recordings sampled from local
labels into uncharted territory, creating a dance music in what is still a
distinctly Okinawan framework. Ambient, dub, electronica, jungle, soul,
jazz and hip-hop swim in the mix with elements of Indian, Afrobeat and
Japanese traditional music. Now it's a global Asian sound to the world,
direct from the Ryukyu Underground.

The musical masterminds behind Ryukyu Underground are Keith Gordon and Jon
Taylor. Keith Gordon arrived in Okinawa from the UK, with a strong
reputation for playing open-minded DJ sets over a fifteen-year period. Jon
Taylor came to Okinawa with a wealth of music industry experience gained as
world music DJ, producer, journalist and musician (playing guitar with
legendary reggae musicians U-Roy and The Ethiopians).

The mixing of ancient and modern, organic and electronic is a difficult
balance. Ryukyu Underground has successfully updated traditional Ryukyu
Island songs, whilst maintaining their essence that is at the heart of this
unique album. Welcome to the sound of Okinawa-fusion.
