DJ Nobu is a DJ from Chiba city in Japan. He organises now legendary party called Future Terror and his own label Bitta in his home town.
NOBU’s stance as a DJ can be best described as underground — his persistence is undisputed.
However, that should not be confused with stylistic inflexibility.
Rather, his approach is singular and ever-changing, constantly modified and adjusted to the quality and the concept of each gig he plays. He keeps it all underground, yet he manages to mutate it. It is this ability that makes him stand out, as can be heard on his official mixes such as Dream Into Dream (tearbridge), ON (Musicmine), No Way Back (Lastrum) and Creep Into The Shadows (Underground Gallery.)
In recent years, he has been programming his set around highly abstract techno with authentic floor anthems, textured avant-electronic music as well as unknown house tracks, along with even more obscure contemporary electronic pieces. He excels in threading challenging tracks from his wide repertoires into a compelling story.
What he could present on the dance floor with his DJ set has gained much love and applause, even among many international acts he shared the stage with. Lately, he has been touring regularly to Europe including several appearances at the techno institution Berghain, collaborating with Smoke Machine crew from Taiwan, building his network worldwide to explore his new frontiers.
