Tribute to YAMASHITA TATSURO – Selected by Prince Klassen

Worldwide Sounds

Wow. Talk about some heavy digging! Dead serious mix from our friend Prince Klassen from NYC.

From Prince Klassen: “The goal of the mix was to celebrate one of my favorite Japanese musicians that surely gets the credit he deserves but rarely observed as one of the world’s greatest and most prolific artists, Yamashita Tatsuro. His work is endless and though plentiful amongst other musicians and singers, his arrangements are clearly very Tatsuro.

While his solo work has been long admired and collected, it was his studio work for others I wanted to tap into. While compiling tracks for the mix I found myself inundated with more than one mix can handle so the plan would be to carry on the series at my leisure. The mix was also created for my good friends Ryan and Yoko’s newborn baby, Noemi. Though I haven’t met her or Tatsuro in person they both bring me equal amounts of joy and hopefully soon I will get to hang with both of them.”
