DJ Nobu Presents: Beyond Space And Time 001


Beyond Space And Time is the new record label from Japanese music festival, Rainbow Disco Club (RDC). This time around, festival regular DJ Nobu kindly opens up his collection and shares the music he loves with everyone. On visual duty is Senekt -- his representational yet contemporary drawing illustrates the emotion that comes from DJ Nobu. DJ Nobu describes ten tracks this way: Laurent Garnier's "Water Planet": Highly respected French DJ/Producer Laurent Garnier has been releasing tracks for decades capturing the very essence of Detroit Techno and Breakbeat. He always manages to create something truly emotional. Mono Junk's "Beyond The Darkness": This track represents the very early days of Techno with it's ravey atmosphere. It has a primitive feel, and the obscure mixdown sounds almost unbalanced. Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia's "The Valley": It was always my intention to include this track in a compilation if I were ever to do one. It has a fat underlying groove, with some indigenous spices thrown in. Melody Boy 2000's "Plenty Of Love": I wanted to include a track that had jacking feel to it -- that is my definition of dance music. This track mixes well in both techno and house DJ sets. Drax Ltd. II's "Amphetamine": This is my all-time favorite track by Thomas P Heckman. It asks questions and strikes down all the boring 'wanna be cool' techno tracks. Dan Curtin's "3rd From The Sun": Curtin's refined synth grooves and bass lines make this a true timeless classic. Front 242's "U-Men": The originator of Electric Body Music. Their husky vocals, hard rhythms and strong synth basslines made the group very popular at the time, and they are still to this present day. The Prince Of Dance Music's "E3 E6 Roll On": This is the track I played the most up until around 2006. It is a genuine house track that cuts through trends in music. Pan Sonic's "Lähetys / Transmission": Electronic music has existed for decades, and if you are to choose some of the best from all scattered and hidden places, Pan Sonic's 'Lähetys / Transmission' must be considered. The track emerges beautifully -- breaking structures and transcending the past. Burial's "Archangel": This track merges melancholic emotions with technological prowess at the highest level, and deeply impacted the dance music scene on its release..."
