Japanese action

Written by: 27 February 2012 3 Comments

Move D is a man who should need little introduction to the BMP. Great singles released on Workshop, Uzuri, Running Back, the classic ‘Songs from The Beehive’ with Benjamin Brunn on Smallville, and (bound to impress some of the more aged BMPers), several releases on mid 90s warp records. So it goes without saying that I’m looking forward to his gig here in Tokyo in a few weeks. I thought I might focus on the support lineup all of who are also doing good things.

DJ Nobu seems to organise and play lots of the big techno parties around Tokyo, I first saw him smashing things after Scuba last year.. He doesn’t have too much production work to his name, but you can find his remix of Skin QER on mule musiq.. Deep rolling heaviness..

Here also you can check out his great recent RA podcast;

Gonno is another Japanese dj and producer I’ve been enjoying a lot – he has a little bit of production under his belt, notably a release on the excellent ‘International Feel’ records;

Here’s a link to his fantastic Beats in space mix.

Lastly we have Stereociti who recently had an album release ‘Kawasaki’ on Mojuba records. If you know Mojuba you won’t be surprised that deep deep dubby house is the focus here – while I haven’t checked out the whole album, the samples and tracks on youtube sound great;

That’s it for now, enjoy the tunes, I will make an effort again soon to highlight other interesting musical findings, Japanese or otherwise.

    Nice – I’ll make sure to checkout that Stereociti album

    I’ve been listening to the Move D Fact mix a fair bit lately, definitely need to try and catch him play at some point.

    Cheers BN1, lovely stuff. Heard the Gonno beats in space mix and loved it, the Made from Muddy Water track makes me happy.
