Shinji came to Vietnam from South Korea shortly before the era of this new global viral panic.
He went over to several cities in Vietnam to party and dig some vinyl.
We enjoyed his playing in some venue, and then we partied together. Eventually, we invited Shinji to our Saigon Mogra studio and recorded this vinyl-only session, like a small family party.
That day was just before he left the city.
I clearly remember the feeling of that moment, as the whole Mogra crew enjoyed the mellow grooves and some melancholic feeling of his selected music that day, and was completely surrounded by chill vibes in the studio.
"Rocksteady, dancehall, dub, lovers rocks & Japanese reggae music."
His selection of music brings us good vibes.
