KAWASAKI RECORDS will release a 7inch commemorating the 30th anniversary of Shibuya THE ROOM owned by Shuya Okino!
Shuya Okino, the owner of THE ROOM, and DJ KAWASAKI, who was also a staff member, have selected floor hits that cannot be overlooked when talking about THE ROOM!
"FAMILY (Hiroshi Fujiwara Remix)" and "SPIRIT OF VOYAGE", which are MONDO GROSSO's early masterpieces with a deep connection, are edited by Shuya Okino, the creator of THE ROOM, and cut as a 7inch single!
MONDO GROSSO's superb cover of Hubert Laws' famous song "FAMILY", which was remixed by Hiroshi Fujiwara, has captured the hearts of many music lovers who have visited THE ROOM so far, bringing happiness to the morning dance floor many times. A historical masterpiece that everyone who has been wrapped in feeling recognizes.
The coupling "SPIRIT OF VOYAGE (NON VOCAL MIX)" is an original song by MONDO GROSSO, and it is a superb jazz-funk fusion that begins with Hajime Yoshizawa's luxurious piano that makes you feel as if you have wandered into paradise.
It is an instrumental number in which even vibraphone is elegantly intertwined with danceable horn phrases and saxophone solos created in the realistic atmosphere of ACID JAZZ.
MONDO GROSSO Shinichi Osawa, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Shuya Okino, the most influential legends in the music scene, and THE ROOM's dream collaboration are realized.
