Date Posted: 2000-07-07

An All Standing Concert, “TMC=Total Music Communication” produced by “Dragon Ash” is going to be held at Okinawa Convention Center. “Dragon Ash” is playing an active part in a current Japanese Hip Hop scene. They chose 6 groups that include Skateboarking, Lappergaria, Penpals, RIP, Slyme, Missile Girl School for the performance with Dragon Ash. The members of Dragon Ash say, “Artists that are in the hit charts are not only the business oriented big-name artists, but also artists that are creating good music.”, and hope more people will realize it.

Dragon Ash is a very popular Rap group in Japan. You probably heard their songs on the wired radio system playing in Japanese stores such as Lawsons, Family Mart, and supermarkets. Japanese rap songs send messages to the audience using rhymes. Rap music started to be popular among some Rap fans about fifteen years ago. In the last few years, popularity of Rap music dramatically increased with the help of media. Now, Japanese music scene is saturated with Rap music. Probably, artists who can survive in this period will be the ones with excellent skills and sharp senses.

TMC 2000 will be held at Convention Center on September 2(Sat). Tickets will be sold from July 8(Sat). 4500Yen.

The members of Dragon Ash are looking forward to visiting Okinawa. They passionately hope Americans to come to their concert. Tickets will be sold at Teruya Record and Fukuhara Record. There will be more information in the next issue.
