RA.855: DJ Nobu
As part of the celebration of 21 years of Resident Advisor, DJ Nobu joins their podcast series.
This podcast arrives ten years after Nobu’s first RA podcast, which led to him being declared “one of Japan’s best DJs.” Fast forward to 2022, Resident Advisor proclaims that he’s now comfortably “one of the world’s best DJs, bar none,” and of course, we agree.
DJ Nobu is one mastermind behind the development of the Japanese school of techno, one that is “psychedelic, hypnotic and often very pretty, without losing the genre’s oomph or edge,” (RA). Likewise, he is responsible for founding Future Terror, his homegrown party in the city of Chiba, now one of the most prominent Japanese techno parties. Celebration was also in the air recently as the party reached its 20th anniversary, marked with a special edition in London’s Village Underground. The first time ever that the party series set foot outside Japan. Stay tuned for November, as DJ Nobu will bring it to Georgia for a feature at Tbilisi’s Bassiani.
His RA mix pays direct homage to Future Terror and his leftfield approach to techno. In accompaniment to the mix, he provided an interview in which he tells the story, past and present, of Future Terror. Read the full write-up here.
