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.
