5 Selects w/ Dubby (Ondas)
Five crucial selections from Tokyo’s Toshihito “Dubby” Maeyama.
Toshihito “Dubby” Maeyama is one of the most revered record collectors in Tokyo. Having worked at legendary record store Cisco Records from 1999-2009 and Organic Music with Chee Shimizu until around 2013, Dubby has a deep knowledge of all genres of music from hip-hop, R&B, house, and reggae to global ambient, dance, avant-garde, and experimental.
His shop Ondas, which means “waves,” opened in 2014 and quickly became the go-to-hotspot for international DJs and collectors visiting Japan. Ben UFO, Antal, Lauren Hansom, Suzanne Kraft, John Talabot, and Young Marco have all visited Dubby’s shop through the years searching for eclectic sounds from Japan and around the world. Check Dubby’s Instagram for some cute highlights from these digs.
In 2018, Dubby compiled the excellent Midnight in Tokyo Vol.2 for Mule Musiq. The 13-track collection featured electronic jazz tracks from the 80’s including hidden gems from Genji Sawai, Yuji Toriyama, Today’s Latin Project, and Shigeru Suzuki.

We’ve been big fans of Dubby for years now, so it’s a huge honor to feature his selections on In Sheep’s Clothing. Below, Dubby shares five tracks that influenced his musical journey, along with brief, poetic descriptions.
P.S. Dubby’s webshop closed last year, but you can still purchase records from him through his discogs shop: https://www.discogs.com/seller/OM_TOKYO/profile
