Wonderful Noise

Despite the magic of the interweb it's still hard work getting your music noticed in foreign countries, but a number of local new soul producers are busting onto the Japanese scene with the help of Kenji Sakajiri, and his label Wonderful Noise Productions. A recent New Zealand tour with Tokyo Hip Hop artist Grooveman Spot gave Sakajiri the chance to meet many of the artists signed to Wonderful Noise - including Pacific Heights and Electric Wire Hustle. Emma Smith met Sakajiri with DJ Andy Mitchell from Wellington's Jewel School collective.
