liner notes(intro) For overseas listeners:
Hi, nice to meet you.
I am the administrator of this blog.

This blog is basically written in Japanese.
But in this We are trying to write articles in English.

Because, special feature on Chocolate Song,
I would like to introduce Japanese songstresses to people overseas, especially, another side of City-Pop, such as J-Divas in J-R&B, Kayokyoku, etc.

You may know 2016 to late 2010s City-Pop revival was in the context of future funk, from vaporwave in late 2000s.

So, mainly the “Boogie” side of City-Pop was accepted by oveaseas audiences.

I agree. Because, I was listening groove side of our City-pop just as you from actual 1980s.

That’s the great influence by dance music such as US Black music.

So, in this “chocolate” songs playlist, I would like to introduce more influence of Black culture in Japanese R&B, Hip-Hop, Disco music.

I can’t say they were most popular genre in Japanese pop music, because J-Pop, rock, are main stream in Japan.

But, even though in J-Pop artist, some songs are very funky.

Even though in 80s Japanese “Kayokyoku”era, there were very sweet urban R&B. e.g. “Oh, No, Oh, Yes” by Akina Nakamori – check’em with “Between the Sheets”.

City-Pop, which has become a little more well-known overseas in recent years.
But, I would like to introduce more variety of Japanese pop music.

This time we mainly focuced on Black music.
(Because main purpose is playlist for St.Valentine day.)

But, we have also Latin music, Brazilian music, and World Music.
If we have chance, we would like to introduce such kind of “another side” of Japanese pop music.

Thank you for reading. Enjoy 🙂 and Happy Valentine!

soul/kayokyoku – “Ueno-kei”

Ueno Shinobazuno ike Night view

soul/kayokyoku – “Ueno-kei” music* notes: Ueno-kei” is a word coined by the author (though it is hardly known even in Japan).「上野系」とは筆者が勝手に命名した造語(日本でもほとんど知られているわけではありません。)(;^_^A …イメージとしては「東京っていい街だな」 左とん平などのTrio Recordsを筆頭にHotwaxの昭和番外地系和モノと上野周辺のディスコそして昭和歌謡などの和モノを混ぜたような感じ(私案)…もう少し広域には日暮里~上野~御徒町~日本橋(レコードコンビニ)~浅草辺りの三角形(※ただし東京やアキバ系は既にジャンルが確立しているので除く?いやもちろんどちらも好きなんですが多分上野系はちょっと別テイストかと(;’∀’))

bitter chocolate gyosu my favorite

Hi guys, here’s my private playlist for special day of Valentine and/or ordinary cozy night with “Chocolate”.


This “DaJare” mixtape featuring Citypop female artists, Japanese R&B Divas, and as you know some tunes from “chocolate” funk etc… enjoy 🙂 and Happy Valentne !

Perhaps people overseas will associate boogie with city pop.

Mariya Takeuchi “Plastic Love”, Miki Matsubara “Midnight Door – Stay with me”, Meiko Nakahara “Fantasy”, and Yasuha “Flyday Chinatown”.

However, the charm of city pop lies in Japanese 70s/80s citypop, 00s/10s neo-city pop, and mellow and sweet masterpieces.
Just as the charm of American R&B/Soul and Funk bands lies not only in dance songs, but also in mellow grooves and sweet love songs.

So, in this playlist, I would like to select and recommend those sweet and mellow japanese citypop songs.

And, of course, chocolate is not only sweet, but also bittersweet.

Slow-funk’s deep grooves actually have an inherent sweetness, but on the surface they’ll feel bittersweet like cocoa beans without sugar.

With such a rough meaning, here we have selected funk and black dance songs as bitter songs.

Of course, I don’t intend to interpret the genre in a difficult way. Feel free to refer to the playlist you want to listen to during your special Valentine’s day, or during your usual relaxing time with chocolate.

Happy valentine, Enjoy Music!
