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, Taro Hakase, Yugo Kanno, Yoko Kanno, Ai Otsuka, Akino Arai, Chara, Emi Fujita, ELISA, FLOWER (of E-girls) Hiroko Shimabukuro, JUJU, Maaya Sakamoto, Mika Nakashima, Miu Sakamoto, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Kana Hanazawa, Kana Nishino, LiSA, Sachi Tainaka, Shiina Ringo, SCANDAL, SPEED, KAT-TUN, DAISHI DANCE, EXILE, Fukuyama Masaharu, Gackt, Hideki Tokunaga, Kobukuro, Nakata Yasutaka, Oda Kazumasa, Orange Range, Olivia Ong, Corrinne May, Cheer Chen, Valen Hsu. Basically 90% of my own library are comprised of Asian/Japanese music mostly.
