On the seventh volume of the Buddha-Bar series, the mixing duties are split between DJs Ravin and David Visan – the latter a protégé of Buddha-Bar founder Claude Challe. Disc one is highlighted by the Charles Webster remix of Salif Keita's “Moussoulou,” Federico Aubele's “Postales,” and My Phuong Nguyen & Thierry David's "Huong Viêtnam," while the second disc is led by Ryukyu Underground's "Mo Ashibi" [Jason Bentley Remix] and Les Négresses Vertes' "Sous le Soleil de Bodega (Bodega Di Moko)."

Incredibly, the quality of the Buddha Bar series is holding steady, which is good given that the quality level is about as good as it gets. I have all six Buddha Bar CDs (as well as a growing collection of other "chill out" CDs). On most of the Buddha Bar CD collections, I tend to favor the CD with with the uptempo beats.

Raid 06, The Samurai Capture a King: Okinawa 1609
Author: Stephen Turnbull, Illustrated by: Richard Hook, Donato Spedaliere
Osprey Publishing | November 2009 | ISBN-10: 1846034426 | 64 Pages | PDF | 5.55 MB

Osprey Publishing Description:

A brilliant but little-known operation, the Shimazu clan raid on the independent kingdom of Ryukyu (modern Okinawa) in 1609 is one of the most extraordinary episodes in samurai history and the culmination of centuries of rivalry between the two powers. The defeat of the Shimazu at Sekigahara in 1600, and their need to win favour with the new Shogun, led them to hatch an audacious plot to attack the islands on the Shogun’s behalf and bring back the king of Ryukyu as a hostage. Stephen Turnbull gives a blow-by-blow account of the operation, from the daring Shimazu amphibious landing, to their rapid advance overland, and the tactical feigned retreat that saw the Shimazu defeat the Okinawan army and kidnap their king in spectacular fashion. With a detailed background and specially commissioned artwork, the scene is set for a dramatic retelling of this fascinating raid.

2008 two CD set. From its humble beginnings as the small fishing village of Edo, to the megacity of Tokyo with a population of over 12 million, Japan's capital city is one of the world's most exciting cultural epicenters. Musically the Japanese are cultural magpies, but they also have their own rich traditions. This compilation celebrates a mix of the two and includes everything from the exciting ska rock of The Beaches, the twisted electronic dub of Oki and the Ryukyu Underground to meditative Buddhist chants. 30 tracks. Nascente.
