A great book that tracks the cooler side of club music over the past 20 years – club jazz, drum n bass, house, hip hop, acid jazz, and more – the kinds of groove
s that we've always loved, and which are a lot better than what you'd find on a mainstream dancefloor! The book is like other Japanese guides in that it's divided up into record listings with review text in Japanese – but other details in English, alongside full color images of all covers. Full length sets are mostly covered – really important records that have gone onto not only shape the sound of future music, but also help towards a re-examination of the past – very much the kind of energy we're into here at Dusty Groove
. And no surprise, the titles featured include a heck of a lot of Dusty Groove
favorites – in listings that are presented in roughly chronological order. There's hundreds of listings, and the book is over 150 pages, softcover.
