House Of The Rising Sun

Sorry everyone, I’m not particularly creative with the thread titles but I’ve been wanting to start this one for a while. I’ve been deep into Japanese house over the past few years but it seems all the time I’m surprised by something I’ve not heard before.

Anything goes, as long as it’s on the housier side of things - from the giants like Soichi Terada, Satoshi Tomiie and Shinichiro Yokota, to lesser known producers.

I’d like to try to keep this housey rather than City-Poppy, just because I think there’s a whole wealth of amazing stuff in the house idiom coming from Japan just like the City Pop stuff that gets more hipster cred.

I’ll add some more as we go, but to get things going, here’s a few I like, starting with Terada’s latest:

One of my favorites. There’s an extended version too, but I think the original is fine enough:

Sleeper Morales mix:

Shinichiro always makes me smile:

Something a little different:

And to finish, something by some guy called Sakamoto:

Susumu Yokota was a genius, he’s recorded so much great music in different genres. Here’s his housiest record which includes a very year 2000 cover of Could Heaven Ever Be Like This:
