Here's an interesting release from Sho Chiku Bai Records out of Japan that has recently surfaced on Juno Records. While information on this artist is scarce, the beats have a dope swing feel, with a catchy piano sample and lots of dope scratching and vocal cutups (All in Japanese) - To my ears it's kind of reminiscent of something the Pharcyde might have rhymed over on their first album. Gagle's lyrics will have to be dissected by someone who can speak Japanese, but I enjoyed his flow and cadence, and the chant chorus gives the track some momentum. The flipside features the instrumental.
The pressing itself has been limited to 1000, and features some very unique screen printed artwork.
