Since I've been neglecting the acoustic part of this playlist, here's a double update featuring some great latinish percussions combined with some nice acoustic work, courtesy of SOUND HOLIC. My guess it's the jazz part of SOUND HOLIC.
I've been liking a lot of SOUND HOLIC's recent releases, they've been managing to deliver a lot of great stuff, although in the past they also use to deliver a lot of good orchestra arranges mixed in their albums (the non vocal ones). So it's a known fact that when those guys want and if they turn up that classical engine of theirs, they can deliver good stuff, I'm not really complaining about the usual techno stuff they make though, go and ask Myon if you want opinions on those.

Also, on another note, I'm sure most of you guys know kkcwkoh, (http://www.youtube.com/user/kkcwkoh ), well you see I respect him a lot, as a piano uploader the guy gets the job done perfectly, seriously, he manages to really dig out the most secluded, hidden and fleeting piano arranges there are. For the very reason that I respect him I try not to go into his territory a lot, and above all, upload the same songs he does, since well, it's his territory, and he has almost 1000 subscribers for a reason. Thanks for your constant work, and I hope you can continue providing us with those almost-impossible-to-find piano arranges!

So, that aside, the acoustic work the guy (drukey) shows off in this arrange is great, those little licks of acoustic guitaring in the second song (the booklet says that the guitars are done by "Josh"), the maracas and other percussions in the first song, and above all the piano-work is splendid, I mean come on, parts like, 5:05 till 5:30, 5:52 and 6:24 really do make me have goosebumps. A really... gentle pair of arranges, seriously to turn Utsuho's two themes into this takes a certain amount of skill, since they really do sound like the end of the world (the originals and most arranges). The whole album is great, and has some mighty good tracks, recommended for anyone who follows the channel (go buy it), or for anyone who just wants those nice piano arranges to sleep to (go buy it), but not just piano, there's some violins, sax and in this song, some acoustic guitars mixed up along with those lovely percussions (go buy it). These jazz cats from SOUND HOLIC are great.

Thanks for watching as always!

You can literally sleep... to... this... zzzz....
