When Takaya Nagase moved to New York from Japan, he brought the Japanese digging culture with him. His expansive record collection features a number of classic records and hidden gems across all genres, which he shares with people as one of the musical hosts of JOY at Decatur Audio Laboratory.

In the mix for the 117th Good Room Podcast, Takaya shares some of his favorites from his collection with everything from laid back funk to rock disco and soulful world music with a touch of jazz for an hour and 20 minute jam.
