DJ Nobu playlist for Crack Magazine

With an unde­ni­able knack for dig­ging it comes to no sur­prise DJ Nobu was next up on Crack Mag’s Selec­tion playlist series.

DJ Nobu has been heav­i­ly evolved in Japan’s under­ground music scene for 20+ years strong. Back in the 90’s you could find him div­ing between the hard­core and punk scenes before his world got flipped upside down after watch­ing the mighty Jeff Mills per­form. Since then DJ Nobu has worked his way to the fore­front of Japan’s tech­no scene form­ing his infa­mous par­ty series Future Ter­ror and high­ly adored label Bit­ta. Ahead of his per­for­mance at NeoPop fes­ti­val this August he reflect­ed on his long his­to­ry with music to curate a playlist for Crack Mag’s Selec­tions playlist series on Spotify. 

Dig­ging through his 10,000 strong record col­lec­tion DJ Nobu cap­tured the past the and the present touch­ing on the ear­ly works of Juan Atkins as Mod­el 500 to the bru­tal­ist min­i­mal­ism of Mika Vainio. He fills the gaps with an unpre­dictable selec­tion that runs from tech­no to new wave to indie show­cas­ing his diverse taste in music. Alto­geth­er the playlist cap­tures sev­er­al dif­fer­ent moods, lines of thought and emo­tions. Have a lis­ten and see what you think for your­self below.
