It’s been quiet across the globe the last few days, so I took a few days off updating the site. Psyched to see a new yukipkoproject edit filmed by Takaya Matsumoto first thing this morning, and as usual this does not disappoint. Toyosu Jam Vol.8 features Yosuke Shiozawa, Hiroshi Denton, Yuta Watanabe, Shu Umeda, Akira Horii, Takumi Suzuki, Koh Yoshida, Atsushi Kato, Masashi Itani, and Yuki Itoh (the line at 4:32 is so good!). Nice mix of established names and new talent coming through, this is Japan!

It’s TBT time, and recently I have been rewatching a lot of the FlatWeb TV shows and this week wanted to show some love back to this awesome show. I don’t know about you all out there, but I miss this show. If you got this far reading my ramblings, enjoy the Chad Johnston and Peter Olsen interview from 2012.
Steven Lapsley just uploaded a whole bunch of older footage onto his account, including this gem featuring Jean William Prevost aka Dub and Ahmed Johnson jamming in Philadelphia. Well worth a watch…
