DJ Nomak is a hip-hop producer from Japan that uses instruments such as flutes, violins and pianos in his beats. On this c.d., the music is very reminiscent of traditional Japanese music, except remixed to fit a hip-hop motif. Pismo, Aaron Phiri and Abstract Rude are a few of the MC's that are featured on some of the tracks on this c.d., but there are also quite a few instrumentals. It's one of those c.d.'s that meant to be appreciated for the vibe it emits, and the musicality it brings to hip-hop. It's about as unique as one can get in rap music today.
