Mood Swings Season 2: Welcome Back!
Written by DJ Ekonomiks on September 26, 2016
Hey hey hey~
It’s that time of the year again and ya’ boy is back in the booth for your listening pleasure! This week I’m spinning a Japanese Jazz album by Ryo Fukui entitled Scenery – CLASSIC ALERT – this album blew me away at first listen and I’ve been bumping it for the better part of the summer. However, I love the fall and pleasant end of summer vibes this record is renowned for. The trio synergizes in a way that I can only hope to achieve one day in a group of my own. The way the drums and the bass bounce together make me want to tap my feet and bob my head. The piano is technical and intricate but not in a way that’s overwhelming. The voicings are all clean and evoke a warm feeling in me. This is definitely an album of complex subtleties but nonetheless, a fun record to listen and groove to.
Hope everyone is getting on alright, I know this term is gonna be veeeeery hectic but KPSU radio never fails to put me in a good mood. I’m so thankful to be a part of this orginization and hope anyone listening will understand just how amazing college radio is!
Enjoy the album and tune in to the new time slot now MONDAYS @ 1pm.
