Viral Japanese Jazz & Pop, The Good Side Of YouTube | Esoteric Internet

The YouTube Algorithm is truly a musical mystery.

In the past few years, a strange trend has emerged in people's recommendations. A flood of Japanese Jazz & Pop. Mostly from the 70's and 80's, but that is not all. Alongside these albums, many other obscure musical oddities have emerged.

After a few clicks, one may find themselves in a place dominated by these albums. Often foreign and psychedelic, but all rather obscure. Why does this happen? What has given these musical uploads such dominance? Is it just appeal or is there an alternative explanation? What factor does the Algorithm have within it?
