Shinichirō Watanabe Blade Runner Blackout 2022 and Samurai Champloo Music

Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Space Dandy and Samurai Champloo) directed “Blade Runner Blackout 2022” a short film. It connects the original Blade Runner film and the Blade Runner 2049 sequel.

In 2022, an EMP detonation has caused a global blackout that has massive, destructive implications all over the world.

Shinichirō Watanabe said he was influenced by Blade Runner very much when he was young.

The background drawings are dark American landscape but great.

By the way, I really like Shinichiro Watanabe’s Samurai Champloo as well.

Samurai Champloo inspired by many artists. Here’s a Okinawa fork song, influenced by Daniel Ryan music.


Check out Daniel Ryan soundcloud!

Daniel Ryan describes his music as “a mix of Japanese folk music and glitch hop.” The folk song is this track off the Samurai Champloo soundtrack.

The below music is awesome as well, thanks to Nujabes.
