DJ-friendly cuts from Japanese fusion / boogie / funk pioneer Yuji Toriyama.
Yuji Toriyama is regarded as one of the pioneering Japanese guitar fusionists alongside Hiroshi Sato, Ryo Kawasaki and Yasuaki Shimizu. Toriyama has not enjoyed as much recognition as his contemporaries, after deciding to follow a different path in favour of pop and TV arrangements in the 90s and composing video games soundtracks like Street Fighter II and Final Fantasy XII. Here, Kay Suzuki presents a selection of work from three hard-to-find LPs.
