3. K-Murdock – Beats From The East [Digital]
Back in August producer K-Murdock dropped a free 8-track EP through The Find inspired and influenced by Japan. It’s his homage to the land of the rising sun using samples from his favorite Japanese-born musicians.
K-Murdock: “It was amazing spending time in Japan, which I consider the nerd mecca since all the things we nerd out about here in the States – video games, anime/manga, and Eastern philosophy all call Japan their home originally. Once I got back from the weekend long tour I did out there last fall, I started realizing that some of my biggest music influences also emanated from Japan, so I decided to make this instrumental homage using samples from seven of my favorite Japanese-born musicians.”
