About ZŪJAGO

Website | Instagram

ZŪJAGO(ズージャ語)translated as “jazz language” started off during the Taisho era (1912 -1926) Japan among jazz musicians as a slang. I felt this word was representative in spirit of what jazz in Japan was about. Taking elements of Western culture and turning it into their own thing, be it incorporating elements of traditional instrumentations or progressions.

With this in mind, I had set out to start a blog documenting Japanese jazz during the 1960s to 1980s and beyond. Granted there are easy ways of accessing this music through YouTube and BBE’s excellent J Jazz Masterclass series which has been feverishly reissuing long out of reach presses. I felt it would help to have a place where as many releases were documented and discussed about in some form. Hoping that in time to come more information about the artists who played the music will be discovered and covered here.

About The Weatherman

Soundcloud | Facebook | Instagram

Often torn between his long standing love affair with playful percussions and an ever enticing call to wonky bass lines, The Weatherman has fast made a mark on the growing underground dance music scene in Singapore.

Having a keen ear in his late teens led to an interest across genres, and his voyages through the musical mysteries of labels such as Cómeme, Höga Nord Rekords, Hard Fist and Correspondant were the stepping stones that allowed him to find his way behind the decks.

About Kim Wong

Instagram

Trading mixtapes with school friends, learning guitar solos from ‘God Save The Queen’, getting schooled on punk, grunge, and indie music in his teenage years — all of that has helped shape Kim Wong’s musical style today.

Kim has always dreamt of forming a fashionable punk band solely to play in Saint Laurent fashion shows — obviously, that dream is as unattainable as contacting the aliens.

Teenage Riot was born out of that imagination, a one-man music machine entertaining an entire generation of indie punk rockers. No boundaries, no apologies, just play it loud.

He is a vinyl junkie, the founder of SG Vinyl Junkies Facebook interest group, art director, self-taught DJ/selector of TeenageRiot, and one half of TeenagePop. And, lastly, a hustler.
