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.
