Since the beginning of the year, the international beat scene has had one of it’s bastions in Cosmopolyphonic Radio, a Tokyo-based online radio project that, besides promoting the local talent, is producing a highly recommendable series of podcasts, with names like Mono/Poly, Jay Scarlett, Teebs, Fulgeance, Pursuit Grooves, Onra and TOKiMONSTA. Making good use of the contacts accumulated over the past months, the Cosmopolyphonic team has decided to take the proposal a step beyond by curating a compilation album reflecting their tastes as far as wonky beats, future soul and abstract hip hop goes. The album, a meeting point for both Japanese and foreign producers (Onra, TOKiMONSTA and Devon, who giving a transnational dimension to the project), is simply called “Cosmopolyphonic”. Listen Up and Art Union will release the album on 27th October. Listen to a teaser here.
