Nik Westons Mukatsuku label steps up with its first release of 2008 and what a blinder! With an impressive back catalogue, this vinyl only imprint can always be trusted to uncover a gem and this, the seventh release on the label raises the bar even higher. One of Japans most respected hip hop producers of recent times, DJ Mitsu The Beats has been responsible for many a classic on labels such as Jazzy Sport, Stone Throw and Blue Note - all straddling the jazz/hip hop/broken beat sound perfectly. Here he serves up 2 exclusive instrumentals from his 3 piece hip hop outfit Gagle, of whom he is the producer. The A Side Eastern Voyage is a jazzy hip hop instrumental, evoking the classic sound of Smash Hunters Fat Jazzy Grooves series. Heavy on the head nod, but also fat enough to rock the spot. Over on the flip, the breaks come thick and fast on Kuro Fessional MC - a simple but effective peak time funk rocker.
