Dimitri From Paris, whose name actually rhymes when you’re not like me and your pronunciation of “Paris” doesn’t take on the anglophonic hard “s”, offers us a lovely disco mix of Macedonian musician Vladimir Četkar’s song “Heaven”, sure to both provide listeners with the pleasure of Dimitri’s trademark ultra-chic throwback sounds, and to further trivialize this blog’s always-tenuous connection to the ambiguously-defined “Shibuya-kei” genre. Would Dimitri From Paris call this Shibuya-kei? Would Vladimir Četkar? Would anyone outside of this blog post? Perhaps not, but if one is to take early Shibuya-kei compilation album Sushi 4004‘s description of its genre as “club-pop”, then it does indeed fit the bill – and prominent Shibuya-kei musicians such as Cornelius wouldn’t. So, ultimately, Shibuya-kei, like groove, would appear to be in the heart. Could you really ask for another explanation?
