Mix of the Day: Ghostbeard “Live at Budokan”


As Ghostbeard himself tells it best:

Back in December of 2012 I found myself in Toyko with the Amon Tobin “ISAM Live” tour. Taking 4000 pounds worth of stage design to the other side of the world seemed like a perfectly good excuse to spend an extra 7 days tooling around Tokyo. And of course my first mission was to find the good reggae shops. You know when you’re in a record store and the reggae bin consists of like two good records and a bunch of UB40 and you wonder “where are all the good used reggae records”… well they’re all in Japan. So after spending a ludicrous amount of money on a large stack of Jamaican classics, I turned my attention to the local bins. I admit to knowing absolutely nothing about the Japanese reggae scene. Except to say I found some amazing records and that it sounds like they all grew up on On U Sound classics. I don’t know if these are the freshest tunes out of Japan or like 10 years old or whatever. This is just some awesome stuff I finally found the time to mix together (Ghostdad has slowed down the output…).
