Nu-Soul from Japan
I was exposed to the nu-soul inspired Keyco on my last trip to Japan. While most of my trip was spent checking out the Avant music scene in Tokyo, I did pick up a few records from more mainstream and accessible acts, and I would challenge anyone to listen to Keyco’s “Seven” and not tap their foot and nod their head to the tunes. It’s a catchy little record from a singer who should be getting more attention both in and outside Japan.
Unfortunately, Keyco’s records are only available in Japan, and you will pay a premium price to get your hands on the imports, if you can find them at all. So for a limited amount of time, here is Keyco’s “Seven” in its entirety to download.
