CD

A brilliant follow-up to the first Inspiration set – and like that one, a unique collection of Japanese-only grooves – picked, mixed, and produced by a team that includes contributions from Yukihiro Fukutomi, DJ Mitsu, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Jazztronik, and Kenji Sakajiri of Especial Records! The lineup is incredibly heavy – proof that in the 21st Century, Japan's got as much to offer the global groove scene as better-known points on the European and American scene – and if anything, there's a real border-crossing feel here, as mixes shift back and forth between different modes and sources – exploring a range of 21st Century groove that has an especially cosmic edge! Titles include "Let Yourself Be Free" by Yukihiro Fukutomi with Tasita D'Mour, "Lighthouse (DJ Mitsu chic house mix)" by Five Corners Quintet, "One Chance (Yukihiro Fukutomi rmx)" by Realm & V, "Welcome 2 The Inspiration" by Kyoto Jazz Massive with Bembe Segue, "We Can Change This World" by DJ Spinna with Heavy, "Summer On My Mind" by Jazztronik with Ashley Slater, "The Galactica Suite (Domu rmx)" by Simon Grey, "Fly From The East (Kyoto Jazz Massive rmx)" by Aurora with Vanessa Freeman, "Living Love Song" by DJ Mitsu with Ivana Santilli, and "Give It Up" by ISoul8 with Valerie Etienne.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
