It’s difficult to label J-Pop. Why? Well, how would you describe American pop music? Both genres of music have progressed immensely throughout the last few decades and continue to do so. That said, the significant impact that J-Pop has had on other musical styles and neighboring Asian regions is undeniable.
Our J-Popsu station will feature post-80s chart-toppers with a focus on tracks with high-energy vocals, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums & synthesizer.
Here’s a more detailed overview:
: Mainstream Japanese artists such as My Little Lover, Yumi Matsutoya, GReeeeN, Aqua Timez, Misia, X Japan, Utada and ONE OK ROCK.
What: Listen to popular high-spirited tracks like “Best Friend” by Kana Nishino or “Wake Me Up!” by Mr. Children. In the mood for something more melodic and sentimental? We’ve also mixed in tunes like GReeeeN’s “Tegami” and ONE OK ROCK’s “Winding Road”.
Where: If you own a Japanese restaurant, sushi bar, casual office space, quirky bar or café, this would be a great station to add your mix.
When: An up-tempo station that can be streamed at your location all day and night.
