J. Moore This song had such a nostalgic vibe to it, it made tears well up in my eyes the moment the breakdown started. Thank you so much for this album and I look forward to your unwritten sounds becoming written. Favorite track: LUV 2 LUV.

Mongoosling Yes, I'm glad I bought Sound Effects Record No. 27, thank you for asking! Favorite track: Sound Effects Record No. 27.

Marcone Antelius An album that, again, takes it to 11 that can stand on it's own as not just a remix album but something whole. 2 Mello's talent for drawing out entire songs based on samples is unlike any other artist I've heard. Favorite track: Molotov Music (Interlude).

about

Sounds Of Tokyo-To Future is my Jet Set Radio-inspired follow-up to my 2018 release, "Memories Of Tokyo-To". I wanted to explore an even wider range of genres and sounds than I did on the first album and claim my own lane of style rather than sticking to what has been done.

"Future Unwritten" is an adaptation of a quote from Joe Strummer of The Clash. It burrowed into my head as soon as I read it. During the creation of the album, this was a phrase I would repeat to myself to try and keep hope going. The world was hard to be in during this period, and the creation of this album on its own was the most difficult thing I've ever done. The future is still looking bleak, but it does not have to be--it's up to us to keep working to make the future we want. 2021 and it's still Tag Walls, Punch Fascists. If you're here, you know what's up.

Thank you for supporting independent music.
