MIYAVI X TOM CRUISE X "Mission Impossible-Rogue Nation"

Guitarist MIYAVI performs at the premire for the new movie release "Mission Impossible-Rogue Nation" starring Tom Cruise
 in Japan. 

Embedded image permalink
Hundreds of thousands of  MIYAVI fans around the globe were able to watch through the live streaming site GYAO on August 3rd, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. JST to see their favorite Samurai guitarist and friend interact with the likes of world famous actor Tom Cruise.

As Miyavi has risen to fame through the support of his dedicated and most loyal global fans, his opportunities are just beginning. Starring and debuting in his first leading role in a Hollywood Movie "UNBROKEN" our boy from Tokyo was able to show another side of his talents to non other than his favorite starlit, Angelina Jolie. Meeting famous actors and musicians has become Miyavi's new world and reality, one most would only dream of.

From a homeless musician wandering the streets in Tokyo, who would have never imagined his life would turn out this way, he has done a fine job in managing himself.  The "School of Hard Knocks" has prevailed for this man whom I admire from afar and anticipate his further activities.

As this much anticipated movie was released in the U.S. on July 31st , grossing a whopping 55 million at the box office and ranked number one according to Box Office Mojo more of the world will hear MIYAVI's music and on the subject of his music, Miyavi will hit the world again with an upcoming tour 
"WE ARE THE OTHERS
beginning in Europe as he will never forget his roots, you, the fan.

DJ Shimotaku 1st Album Release

下拓 - 「DISOBEY feat. TOC-Hilcrhyme」
 DJ Shimotaku released his1st album titled "Shimotakunau" just a few weeks ago on July 22nd, 2015 with an impressive collaboration with some of the most popular and talented Rap and Hip Hop artists in Japan.

If you are not familiar with Japan's scene filled with DJ's, Rappers, Hip Hop artists and Reggae enthusiasts, this album encompasses the whole spectrum. In my travels I have witnessed most of these artists at some of the largest events in Japan. I can attest to the fact that this scene is not only huge but entirely different than what you would expect; based on knowledge solely with my personal experience with American artists. If you have the time I highly recommend you watch some of the video links below, it may just change your mind of your perception of Hip Hop!

The underlined and highlighted tracks on the album are Youtube videos of most of the songs on the album. The album is available for ordering now at CDJapan here.
