Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976-1986
Light In The Attic
Catalogue Number
Release Date
May 3, 2019


Pacific Breeze is another superb compilation of Japanese music from Light In The Attic. This set focuses on the boom in City Pop, Album-Oriented Rock and Boogie tunes that occurred in the decade between 1976 and 1986. As the country’s economy grew a sleek, sophisticated style of pop music emerged that struck a nerve with Japan’s hip young urbanites. Pioneered by the Yellow Magic Orchestra crew - in particular Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi - the sound’s lopsided blend of techno, exotica, synth-pop and classic rock thrilled the nation. Pacific Breeze does a fine job of chronicling this unique musical epoch. Hosono’s ‘Sports Men’ is worth the entry fee alone.
