Japanese DJ Bawxxx recently hipped us to his mix of citypop (Japanese AOR), lovingly called Melancholy of Suburbia, and we’re feeling this! Good luck ever finding these records! We don’t know much about Mr. Bawxxx, but with a little snooping we found out that he apparently hails from Nagoya and eats quite well! Enjoy. Also, check out his other mixes.

Track list:

01. 北園みなみ – ソフトポップ
02. 五十嵐浩晃 – 今日かぎり
03. SUGAR BABE – 今日はなんだか
04. 尾崎亜美 – ストップ・モーション

09. 竹内まりや – プラスティック・ラブ

this is part of "Japan" Story
