Updated: Oct 26, 2021


OVER&OVER presents SUMJ's Big Ass Boogie Bento Box


O&O co-founder SUMJ brings us a long-player, a big-ass bento box of J-pop boogie and funk. It is a recording of a special set he live-streamed on O&O's IG and other channels. He described it as a deep-crate dedication mix to his pal Hide & his crew at Marusan & Fleurs & Cadeaux in Montréal. He didn't have a lot of time for an interview, but were able to get a short chat via text.

O&O: What's shaking SUMJ?

SUMJ: A tad too much at the moment 👍🏽 ... Running late to the airport

O&O: Got a second for a quick text interview?

SUMJ: Sure, shoot

O&O: What can you tell us about the mix?

SUMJ: It's from a livestream I did on O&O's channels. Lot's of J-pop, boogie & fawnky rarities. All-vinyl.

O&O: Is this a dedication mix?

SUMJ: Yes, it's a cross-border shout out to Hide & the crew at Marusun & Fleurs & Cadeaux. two of my fav spots in Montreal, where you can also catch some killer dj's & music.

O&O: How did you meet Hide or discover these spots?

SUMJ: My pal Kris Guilty (La Rama Records) introduced me to Hide at one his spots Marusan in the before times -- the food & unique wines are fucking amazing, you got to go next time you up north. Kris & Hide are good mates & every time the vibe and food is on point.


When I first met Hide, I had the pleasure of catching one of their Nippon Boogie nights. The music was slamming. We each have a deep love for J-pop funk & boogie.

I've wanted tp spin with them for awhile, but since the borders closed down it made it tricky. So this is the set I was planning on doing. Hopefully with things opening up, I can get up there soon. I admit following them from afar, I am jealous I can't join in the fun.

Anyway, I wanted to send some love up to the crew via a live-stream. This mix is the full set, just under four hours. I think it sounds pretty good, but Listeners, apologies in advance for any glitches as it's the raw recording from the mixer.

Btw, we got to get Hide to do a mix for us soon. His a killer selector. & Kris is down, so that is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Shit, I gotta bounce. Hope you enjoy it.

O&O: No worries. Do your thing.

SUMJ: Thanks! & much love to my Montréal mates Hide & Kris, I hope to see ya soon.

O&O: & thank you for the mix. We are excited to hear what Kris drops for us soon &, yes, we definitely will send an invite our to DJ Hide. Safe travels amigo!

SUMJ: じゃあね is またね (mata ne) & à bientôt!
