I’m not as familiar as I probably should be with Japanese Instrumental Hip-Hop. Nomak and the now deceased Nujabes always seemed like the two brightest stars to emerge from the Japanese archipelago, both combining smooth beats over an even smoother mix of jazz and traditional Japanese instrumentation and melodies. With his 4th album, Dynamic Meditation Instrumental Limited, Nomak still sticks with this sound, molding his country’s past with Hip-Hop’s future. On an album full of relaxed, chilled out cuts, “The Universe” just happens to be a little bit more cool, a little bit more relaxing than the rest. It is pure Nomak.

Wow, someone else on this site has heard of Nomak? Good stuff! Severely under-represented here, despite my feeble attempts at whoring it out.

I'm still a fan of 'Calm', which has actual lyrics in some of the songs. I think everyone should listen to it if you want something different from hip-hop.

I think I already know the answer, but is there any way we can, say, request a "Song of the Day" for a track that might not otherwise get any notice?

I thought it said Namek, like planet Namek! *...slowly stepping out...*
