The Ocean Boom

The Ocean Boom was created as a cultural experience for both Japan and America. Written primarily in English, we aimed at giving English readers an inside perspective of Hip Hop/Rock events that happen in the crawlspaces of Japanese civilization. In return, we shared American pop culture with them. We also covered international superstars like Oasis, Joe Satriani, Common, and R.E.M. as they toured the land of the rising sun.
