METOME – BSHOP’S RING SUN
Tagged on Soundcloud as ‘power jazz’ this new free download from Japanese producer Takahiro Uchibori, aka Metome, has more in common with the neon RnB of someone like B Bravo or those early awesome James Blake remixes, before he got all angst-ridden, than anything resembling actual jazz. Despite that, I’m still gonna tag it as jazz on WordPress in the hope some noodly jazz musos get lured over to my site under false pretences. However you want to try and pigeon hole this track, it is good. And that is all the critique you’ll get from me.
