[Machine Translation] From Nara! TOP RUNNER, a reggae music producer in the Kansai area, is releasing a new mix CD called "The Connected Music"! This is a medium mix of classic SOUL, R&B, POPS, and ROCK songs from the 1950s to the 2000s by reggae artists - cover songs only - under the concept that music is connected without any gap between genres or eras. You can listen to it as a medium mix when you just want to relax. The original song is more famous, and you can enjoy it from various angles, discovering new things such as "I didn't know this song was also sung by a reggae artist," or conversely, "I didn't know this reggae song was also an original song. The intro track features CHAQURA, a singer from the Kanto region who is currently the focus of attention. As a new experiment, the saxophone player Benkei from ANADDA REBEL, who is active in the Kansai region, recorded his saxophone and is included in the original remix. TOP RUNNERS -The Untouchable Sound- PROFILEThe band was formed in Nara, Japan in 2005 with Toyo as the core member. After that, the members changed, and now TOYO ( MC,SEL ) EGA-C ( SEL,MC ) KENSHOW ( SEL ) is active around the country, mainly in Kansai area. With a wide range of music selections and original dub plates, they perform at various dances in styles ranging from sound clash to joglin', and regularly perform at A-YOUNG on an irregular basis and OVERCOME at Club joule in Osaka every Wednesday. In the fall of 2011, he won the BOMBOCLAT NIGHT -THE SURVIVOR- clash in Tokyo, and won the right to participate in the Shibuya Reggae Festival, which was a great success. He also actively organized dances in Nara and Osaka, all of which were a great success. Keep an eye out for TOP RUNNER, who is accelerating at a rate that no one can touch!
