A treasure trove for newcomers and crate diggers alike.
DJs Yoshizawa Dynamite and Chintam are releasing the third compilation in their WAMONO A to Z series, via 180g this October.
The term Wamono encompasses a wide array of vintage Japanese records, ranging from funk and disco to soul and jazz.
Zoning in on the fertile sonic output between 1978 and 1988, the compilation collects mellow funk, disco boogie, rare groove, and soul records.
It follows WAMONO A to Z. Vol. II, which similarly explored ’70s funk, disco, and electronica records.
