Zach This single randomly appeared in my YouTube recommendations and I love how cmyk! has recreated the whole Japanese 80's city pop aesthetic so perfectly! Honestly thought he sample some parts, but the entire song was created from scratch! Seika Tan singing was amazing as well! Favorite track: 「 旨味 (Umami) 」.

Kirogata cmyk! has some next level talent at capturing the feel of 80-90's citypop vibes. Catchy and upbeat while not being so in your face that you can't relax while you appreciate getting your funk on. Favorite track: 「 旨味 (Umami) 」.

DJ Home Movies Don't be fooled! At first, "Umami" sounds like it hit gold with the old song used. Wrong! Not a single sample! It's its own tune. Truly a modern beauty retrospective of the late 80's pop scene of Japan. This is what I hope what future funk culminates to one day; wholly original tunes to revitalize an amazing decade to share with those young and old. And cmyk! is taking a step in the right direction to leading this genre to new songs, new talent, and new hopes. You have my best wishes! Favorite track: 「 旨味 (Umami) 」.

kimi ha machi no hikari no you ni
心を癒す 消えないでほしい
kokoro wo iyasu kienaide hoshii

You are like the city lights
You heal my heart I wish you wouldn’t disappear

yoru ga naiteiru
asu wo matteiru

The night is crying
Waiting for the morning

toki ha nagarete
watashi ha kawaranai

Time is flowing
But I remain unchanged


Umami! makin’ me go crazy
Umami! your lovin’ so tasty


omoide ha karappo no heya ni ukandeiru
beddo no ue ni ha okashi ga aru

君は綺麗な笑顔で笑っていた ああ
Kimi ha kirei na egao de waratteita aah

My memories are floating in this empty room
Some sweets are on the bed

You were laughing with such a beautiful smile, aah


ano hi no rasuberii no aji ga mada nokotte iru
demo itsuka kieru ki ga suru

それでいい 何もないから
sore de ii nani mo nai kara
geemu shite kimi wo omoidasu

That raspberry taste from that day still remains
But I feel like it will disappear one day

That’s fine It’s nothing
As I play games, I’ll think of you

100% of Umami is original. No samples used!
