Music Preferences

I listen to mostly anything nowadays, but I don't tend to listen to genres such as Metal/Progressive Rock much. I'm personally a huge fan of works by composers/artists such as Nobuo Uematsu, Naoki Sato, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Yugo Kanno, Yoko Kanno, Maaya Sakamoto, Ai Otsuka, Akino Arai, Chara, Emi Fujita, ELISA, Hiroko Shimabukuro, JUJU, Mika Nakashima, Kana Nishino, Kana Hanazawa, LiSA, SPEED, KAT-TUN, EXILE, Fukuyama Masaharu, Hideki Tokunaga, Gackt, Nakata Yasutaka, Orange Range, Olivia Ong, Corrinne May, Cheer Chen, Valen Hsu. Basically 90% of my own library are comprised of Asian/Japanese music mostly.
