Grooveman Spot returns to his hip-hop roots again with Resynthesis (Green)
Grooveman Spot is one of the key players of Tokyo’s renowned hip-hop label Jazzy Sport and he has an extremely diverse back catalogue: his classic Eternal Development from 2006 was pure hip-hop from the boom bap / jazzy side of the genre, but then he started to experiment with different styles, including break beats and later on he even did some truly excellent funk and soul infused house releases. On 2014’s Supernatural he pretty much included tracks from every music style he ever worked in, while Resynthesis (Red), that dropped in May, 2016 was a collection of heavy, abstract hip-hop tunes. And now, exactly two years after Red, he is back with its follow-up, Resynthesis (Green), which, based on the samples, yet again sees him returning to his hip-hop roots. And not only that, but it also markes the 25th anniversary of his music career, which began back in 1993 when he started to spin records as a club DJ.
