Walearic Disc Guide by Shotaro Matsumoto

"Walearic" is a word coined by Matsumoto, connecting "Wa"(means "Japanese" in Japanese) and "Balearic" club music established in Ibiza, Spain.Though as a matter of fact, Walearic is not exactly the same as Balearic. Matsumto was inspired by the vague concept of Balearic which crossovers any genres, and coined the new genre Walearic under his own aesthetics.

As you may now know, the demand for Japanese vinyls recorded in 70s & 80s has been rising among collectors worldwide. This guide book is the ultimate diggers tool!
