|DJ MITSU THE BEATS (JAPAN)
GUEST MIX FOR ANDREW MEZA'S BTS RADIO
LIVE IN TOKYO ('05)
The Jazzy Sport collective has been one, if not the main spearheading force for underground hip-hop in Japan the past decade. One of the most respected crews in the world with some of the finest talents and future legends. When I first began the show, Jazzy Sport established their record label, pushing out an infinite string of back to back quality releases. Releases from the likes of The Sa-Ra Creative Partners, IG Culture, Count Bass D, Cro-Magnon, Grooveman Spot and of course, DJ Mitsu The Beats.
If one person holds the flag for Jazzy Sport, it's got to be Mitsu. A world renowned DJ, producer and 1/3 of the hip-hop group Gagle. He's been spotlighted for years with production that's channeled the greats from the mid '90s. If there's one thing I respect most about Jazzy Sport, is not only do they just stick to representing quality soul and electronic music, they're dedicated to keeping underground hip-hop alive.
One of the most requested archives, DJ Mitsu The Beats live in Tokyo. Recorded exclusively for Andrew Meza's BTS Radio at Club Milk.
