Ami Suzuki – I Simply Really feel Good (single of the week!)

The manufacturing by TeddyLoid is simply elegant. This veteran dance diva has returned with a complete banger. I like this. It’s one among three (!) “singles of the week” this week.

CRAVITY – I Can’t Struggle The Feeling (b-side of the week!)

I wrote about this right here. I favored it quite a bit!

ExWHYZ – Furachina Summer time

Give me a simple summer time dance beat and I’m good. This gained’t win awards for originality, but it surely’s very satisfying.

Hinatazaka46 – Am I Prepared?

The verses are a little bit too affected for me, however I’m having fun with the intense, bubbly refrain.

Madkid – One Room Journey

There are some good, anthemic moments in right here.

Miss Mercy – Summer time Rays

There’s one thing not fairly but developed about this, however total it’s one other nice summer time dance observe.

NIK – Turning Level

Given their impending disbandment, I assume that is sort of a farewell launch. That’s too dangerous.

OWV – Right here & Now

A pleasant little bit of upbeat, boy group j-pop with a surging beat.

Reol – Edge

Just about what you’d anticipate from Reol, which suggests that is fairly good!

Rhymester – My Runway (ft. Rei)

This can be a little tacky in components, however that’s sort of its allure. I like upbeat, get together rap. Add guitar on high and also you’ve bought a recipe for achievement.

Tremendous Junior L.S.S – Shut The Shutter

I’m unsure how this track took place. It looks as if it was dumped onto streaming platforms with out a lot fanfare. However I actually benefit from the traditional Tremendous Junior goofiness and artistic percussion.

Tokyo Gegegay – Break The Romance (single of the week!)

I wrote about this right here. I beloved it, and despite the fact that the video got here out a pair weeks in the past I’m calling it one among my singles of the week.

Travis Japan – Sweet Kiss (single of the week!)

I wrote about this right here. I beloved it, and it’s my last single of the week!

WATWING – Let’s Get On The Beat

WATWING are usually hit and miss for me, however this falls someplace within the center. It’s groovy, however a bit too generic to stay.

Yuya Tegoshi – Tremendous Session

This jogs my memory of a solo he would have recorded as a part of a Information undertaking. It’s one of many stronger songs he’s launched since leaving the group.

Predia – Voyage (2015)

In the present day seems like an ideal day to function one other unbelievable Predia track. This entire album is epic, truly.
