Pacific Breeze is an expertly compiled collection of choice selections from Japan’s City Pop genre – music that ranges from silky smooth grooves to innovative techno-pop bangers and everything in between. Long-revered by crate diggers and adventurous music heads, this music has never been officially compiled for release outside of Japan until now. Including key artists like Taeko Ohnuki and Minako Yoshida, as well as cult favorites Hitomi Tohyama and Hiroshi Sato, the long-awaited release also features newly commissioned cover painting by Tokyo-based artist Hiroshi Nagai, whose iconic images of resort living have graced the covers of many classic City Pop albums of the 1980s.
