Description of item

A MIX CD "18th Anniversary Mix" has been released to commemorate the 18th anniversary of the DJ event "Sound Maneuvers" by GAGLE's DJ Mitsu the Beats & DJ Mu-R.

DJ Mitsu the Beats side presents a superb mix/selection of current band sounds to minor beat instruments, jazz, hip hop, soul funk, dub, ambient... that is also in line with his own sound production.

DJ Mu-R's side will be spanning a fascinating musical world that transcends genres, incorporating songs by Japanese artists, centering on covers of famous soul songs.

DJ Mitsu the Beats' side embodies his own musical world through DJ MIX, incorporating a variety of genres including jazz-abstract downtempo, dub-funk hip-hop and beats, ambient electric jazz, moody Afro-beat jazz, electric soul, hip-hop, and more, with exquisite use of scratches and effects.

Starting with a superb organ cover of that classic "gently attacking" tune, DJ Mu-R's side moves on to a bedroom funk interpretation of a soul classic dubwise, edits, and goes from minimal to ambient, where rhythm, groove and sound blend together, allowing the listener to experience a rich world of music from a wide range of comfortable sources.

Packed with Sound Maneuvers' unique song selection and groove, this is a fresh yet timeless work.
