mabanua (a made-up word, an anagram of his real name) is one of Japan’s leading drummers, producers, beat makers, and also a member of the spiritual jazz/hip-hop band based in Tokyo - Ovall.

The instrumental version of "So Real" is an outstanding sonic musical experience, consisting of a crispy hip-hop beat, groovy breaks, a slappy bass line, and playful keys. A soothing blend of r&b, neo-soul, jazz, and hip-hop.

For the original version of "So Real", the Japanese artist collaborated with New York-based SSW, Nicholas Ryan Gant, who has been supporting big names such as Mariah Carey, Brandy, and Childish Gambino as a backing vocalist. You may wanna check out it as well, you won't regret it.
