クラブ・カルチャー黎明期からレコードを回し続け、DJ活動30周年を迎えた須永辰緒。これを記念する5年半ぶりのオリジナル・アルバムが届けられた。なんといっても目を惹くのは、MUROECDスチャダラパーらヴェテラン6組がマイク・リレーを展開する“DIRTY30”。ブレイクからして最高なジャズ・ラップがフレッシュに耳を奪う。恒例のカヴァーもEGO-WRAPPIN'“色彩のブルース”にアメリカ“Ventura Highway”など賑やかなラインナップ……ながら、いずれも〈夜ジャズ〉系の渋いアレンジに仕立てているのが彼ならでは。またオリジナル曲ではテック・ハウスも飲み込んだフューチャリスティックなサウンドを展開。自身のキャリアをエンタメ感たっぷりに総括しつつ、最新モードも提示する一枚だ。

Spinning vinyls since the dawn of Japanese club culture, Sunaga Tatsuo hereby celebrates his 30th anniversary of his brilliant DJ career with this 1st original album in 5.5 years under his solo project tag, Sunaga t Experience. The most notable track in this latest album would be “DIRTY 30”, a piece featuring a mic-relay by the veteran 6 artists including MURO, ECD, Scha Dara Parr, and in which fantastic jazz rap freshly catches your ears in the break. Meanwhile, his regular specialty of cover versions of various others such as “Shikisai no Blues (meaning Color Blues)” by EGO WRAPPIN’ or “Ventura Highway” by America are alive and kicking, though every tune is tailored with his signature night-jazzy-ish mature chic arrangements. At the same time, his non-cover, original tracks deliver futuristic sound with a touch of tech house. While reviewing his great years with plenty of entertainment, this new album also pleasantly presents his latest mode as well.
