Vinyl From the Vault: One Way and Chaka Khan

Another great find from Disk Union in Kichijoji:

I Feel For You by Chaka Khan features the eponymous title track originally penned by Prince. Who's Foolin' Who by One Way features the funk classic, "Cutie Pie", which also currently happens to be my favorite phrase to refer to girls I have my eye on.

Maybe I will spin these two tracks at my next party on May 20th.

Chirinuru Wowaka - Interview for Metropolis

Towards the end of last February, I interviewed Yuu from Chirinuru Wowaka and GO!GO!7188 for Metropolis Magazine. The article was finally published last Friday. Please check it out and let me know your thoughts!

Chirinuru Wowaka Interview for Metropolis

Unfortunately, it was nearly impossible to compress the key points from an hour-long interview into a mere 800 words. I will say this though, for all of Yuu's shyness, once you get her talking she really lets it all out. Yuu is a very cool person and an incredibly talented musician, and I feel fortunate to have had the chance to sit down with her.
