Woodblue - North Letter
Woodblue is an instrumental hip-hop artist from Japan. his approach to hip-hop is similar to Nujabes, with piano a frequent addition to many of the songs. however, Woodblue incorporates world music into the album as well, the most obvious example being Green Flash in which tribal percussion and chants play a large role. the album is very long, reaching an hour and 12 minutes in length, but the whole thing is chilled and relaxing and as such difficult to dislike.
