    thats pretty crazy, especially on the soloing front
    its interesting how japan has such a deep culture/respect for jazz/funk/soul...i guess the historic ties to the US are a crucial part of that...and tokyo and LA are only separated by a bit of water. Actually that Casiopea record is quite West Coast sounding.

    no, sounds good. mastercuts are usually solid

    It's volume 6 of the jazz funk series, defo worth picking up. This is my favourite track from It, some heavy harmonica.

    Funny, youtube autoplay has given most of the same weirdo japanese 70s and 80s stuff as posted here. Not quite so individually tailored as one might think, but still good

    There are def tunes that get pushed by the algorithm heavily. It depends what tune you start with tho (obviously, I guess)

    I guess it is the modern equivalent of eg garage punk comps in the 80s, which made a few extremely obscure tracks very popular, to the extent that by the 2000s the obscure tracks were more well known than the classics.

    I wonder if it's essentially targeted advertising. Light in the Attic or whoever paying so they play this next for people listening to ambient stuff, then announcing the lush vinyl re-issues a few months later.
  17. corporate influence

    killer b Feat. Sean Paul

    what do you mean?
  19. I assume Youtube is effected by corporate influence(as in record companies paying for an increased chance of play).... saying that though I did get this

    which will give immense pleasure to a select few but is of no commercial value :/ Naughty rabbits.

    I assume like any google thing there'll be ways of gaming the algorithms, but I had a look earlier and as far as I can tell it isn't possible to buy better positions.

    I can't see there being enough money in putting out reissues of obscure japanese prog that the record labels would have enough money to spend on marketing that google would pay any attention!

    There must be something tho.... lets ask around

    ... maybe its the other way round, when someone reissues something (or posts it on a popular blog) it means loads of people go check it out on youtube so it boosts its position. That kind of sounds more likely

    So I was listening to the greatest track released this year: Peggy Gou - It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) but rather than the usual youtube video I had happened on a French house and disco channel Delicieuse Musique.

    Up next came a recent remix of Malian superstars Amadou & Mariam by French disco god Ceronne which is every bit as good as it should be: Amadou & Mariam - Filaou Biessame (Ceronne remix)

    Then came a remix of Tobagonian legend Calypso Rose that sounds like a lost Basement Jaxx single from the 90s: Calypso Rose – Calypso Queen (Mo Laudi Remix)

    And then great re-edits kept on coming:

    Indian disco: Alisha Chinai & Vijay Benedict - Zindagi Meri Dance Dance (Olefonken edit)
    Japanese disco: Orange Tree Edits – Dorian (Jimmy Rouge edit)
    Brazilian soul/funk: Evinha – Espera Pra Ver (Poolside & Fantronic Edit)
    Nigerian disco: Oby Onyioha - Enjoy Your Life (Rayko Edit)

    Well done Youtube and your algorithms :thumbs:
