Dublab.jp Test-Run Radio Mix by miked

dublab radio

First radio style mix I ever made, talking while keeping the turntables ready is definitely a task that takes some getting used to. This was for live broadcast at dublab.jp. Dublab.jp just got up and going and has been broadcasting every Wed. night from 8-10pm (Tokyo time). I broadcast an hour every month or two. このミックスは僕の初ラジオ(喋りながら)ミックスです、まだなれが必要です〜 Dublab.jpの毎週水曜日8-10pmやっている生放送のために作 りました。僕は長野県に住んでいるので、二ヶ月いっぺんぐらいなペースで参加しています。 是非dublab.jpをfollowしてください〜

In trying to keep both the international audience and the Japanese audience in the loop,  speak a bit of both…  Also, it was recorded in one shot and much of the time the volume on the speaking parts is too quite..thanks for your understanding.

The weather had been rainy so the first half of the set is rather mellow, just setting a mood. The second half gets way more beat oriented with some well known artists and locals as well.
Enjoy! You can hear and download the whole two hour program (second half by the great AZZURO) here: http://dublab.com/mike-davis-and-azzurro-dublab-jp-radio-test-run-live-from-malmo-tokyo-04-24-13/ ミックスを作った日が雨でしたので、前半はけっこうゆっくりな感じで、後半はビートが入ってきます、聴いてみてください。一発で録音したので、喋ってる時のvolumeが低すぎる場合が多いです、すみません。

The New Human 新しい人間 mix by Moorieman

Here’s a mix from one of the longest contributors to this site and someone who I always take great joy in sharing music with.  This mix was made in 2006 in Berlin and rings of nostalgia for me in many ways.  It has some tracks from artists that were favorites of mine in years gone past (not that they still aren’t favorites).  Lots of goodness in here that you won’t here everyday, definitely check it out.

Here are words from Moorie on the mix:

“Between beauty and noise. That was my life back then. I fell madly in love. I confronted my fears and suddenly everything was possible. I felt like a new human with limitless creativity, ideas and energy. Although there was a lot of disturbing noises everywhere around I lost myself in inspiration. Music and love, that was the beauty I had always looked for. And there it was ready for the taking. My love for inspirational music that invades your mind and gives you that feeling of being liberated, being melancholic, sometimes destructive – all this gave me the idea of what it means to be a human being. It’s all about your emotions…   Between beauty and noise. Between life and death… . A beautiful memory of things that could have been, but in the end only the noise remained and the music.

このミックスはoursoundtracksでけっこ前からミックスを送ってくれたりする友達Moorieさんからです。Moorieはドイツの出身の音楽マニアック。ジャンル広くって、センスばっちりcloset djです。
このミックスは2006年に作られた。自分の中の革命起こされる愛を出会った時期に作ったいう話しです〜 本人がすごく日本の音楽が大好きで、詳しいんで、日本の曲もfeatureしたりするから、是非聴いてみてください〜

Approximate track list:

dario marianelli – evey reborn 
 japanese synchro system – pure finger in deep river
boris – parting       
michael andrews – the tangent universe
terry callier  – 900 miles
mas – griph miroque’s edit

boredoms   – super are

Fruiting Bodies mix @ Bonobo in Tokyo by miked

So last week I had the pleasure of playing at the first event put on by dublab.JP.  This is the soon to be functioning Japanese arm of Dublab, which is certainly an exciting development for the Japanese music community.  I also had the pleasure of playing along side two of my favorite “local” djs in Tokyo Dj Shhhhh and Hara Masaaki and two great film/animation creators from the states Overature and Jordan Kim along with Kabeyah and Michael J. Foks.  The event was one of the smaller of a few events Overature where doing while here in Japan and was held at a small, but fantastic location: Bonobo.  It has a cozy atmosphere and an impeccable sound system. The people were all truly great and supportive.  I had a wonderful time listening and watching the performances and talking to customers, staff and artists.

For me, this was perhaps my first time to dj out somewhere and not play a set of strictly one genre.  Sure I’ve played some funk and soul in reggae sets, and jazz in hip hop ones, but for this event I was more focused on just creating a certain kind of mood rather than sticking to a genre.  However, although there are various genres of music the set is of course still limited by that mood I was trying to create; so it’s not really an all genre mix either.  Still, I’ve pretty much never had the chance to play most of this stuff out anywhere so it was sooo much fun, and I really hope to be able to have more chances to play sets that push my boundaries more.

One downside for me and playing a more free-form set is that I couldn’t keep it all vinyl.  I love me some records, and this was my first time using cds in public before.    I’m a massive fan of all genres of minor music, but due to limited funds have mainly collected records of the genre that I was able to play out in public most at any particular period in my life.  Therefore, as far as records go, I have a healthy amount of Reggae, Soul/Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Minimal Techno.  All other genres are sparse.  In the last two years I’ve started my own struggling business and had a daughter so there is pretty much no chance of buying records for a while.  Thus, I may have to reluctantly turn more and more to the digital format, at least for the time being.

A couple words on the set…

This is basically the set as I played it accept for a couple tracks that I ended up leaving out that night due to having only one hour to play.

I’m always curious to see how some Japanese music goes over with people who have no connection with Japan to influence their taste.  There are two tracks by one of my favorite Japanese artists who started in the 70s, Asakawa Maki (You can find a tribute mix I did for her on Dublab here).  I was initially going to put one in, but then got a request for some Asakawa Maki a couple days before the event so I went ahead and put two in.

The track in between the two Asakawa Maki tracks is a song that I have on a 7″ given to me by my wife’s father.  Knowing that I collect records, he one day came up to me and said “Here, I wrote this song”.  Sure enough there was his name on the label next to “lyrics”.  He said there was some lyric writing contest and he won.  I put it on expecting the worst, but my ears perked up as I heard the opening bassline and fell in love with it as the backing vocals and harmony kicked in.  Not sure what someone with no connection to Japan might think of it, but it goes over extremely well with a Japanese audience.

That’s all I really have to say about the mix.  Have a listen, hope you enjoy.

Beast of the Yellow Night  – GJD

I feel like I say  this every post, but it has been a real long time since posting anything up here.  Once again have been moving (still in Nagano, but moved into a house. yay.)  and a million other things.  Hope to have more stuff coming your way soon, but I’m making no promises. 

Writing stuff in two languages for the mixes is usually what takes the most amount of time, so this next mix is perfect for this season of little free time.

I don’t have so much to say about this mix other than it is really really good.  I’ve listened to it a ton and love it. A super super nice fellow from Australia, Will, I randomly met at an outdoor electronic music festival here in Japan made good on his promise to keep in touch and sent along this mix as a recommendation for the site.  It’s actually from a friend of his and this is the message Will sent along with the mix:

Here is a mix by my friend Glenn. He describes it as being Surf/Amazon/Zombie music. It is quite entertaining. Purpose wise it sums up some of the shenanigans that have occurred around at his place over the last few months.

It’s a lovely mix of underground Surf/Rockabilly/Tv/Country…HIGHLY recommend for those of you who love obscure sounding underground gems.  Not my area of expertise here, so I’m not quite sure how rare or not these tracks are..but they are outstanding none the less.

最近また引っ越しとかいろいろあって、このサイトを全然いじるチャンスがなくって、ひさしぶりなアップデートになったんです。これからも頑張ります~

今回のミックスは今年のLabyrinthというフェスタで出会ったオーストラリア人からのミックスです。 彼の友達が作ったミックスだそうです。 私このミックスを何回も聞いたんだけど、まだまだいけそう。 とってもとっても面白っくて、私のタイプばっちり!ミックスを作った本人がSurf/Amazon/Zombie musicって説明したらし。。。そのとおり、変なRockabilly, Surf,Tv, and Country… 

ぜひぜひきいてみてください!!!

Hot Madras – all South Indian 7″s brought to you by Unconventional Science

(All photos, videos, and music, by Nick Everett)

I first became aware of Unconventional Science, Nick Everett, (producer, dj, and vinyl collector “from” LA ) in India by coming across the fact that he was selling some hot records from India that he was digging first hand and shipping back to LA.  Being utterly financially unable to buy much myself, I instead wrote asking if he might not mind doing a mix for a stranger with a humble little website.  And within a few weeks here we are  with some INCREDIBLE, and presumably largely unexplored jams/gems from Southern India.  I have been truly LOVING this mix lately….super excited to share it.

この間ネットで、インドにいるアメリカ人dj(Unconventional ScienceのNick Everett:ロスのdj兼プロデューサー兼レコードコレクター)が、現地で見つけたインドのアツい映画音楽のレコードを、アメリカ向けに売っているのを見た。それは皆が欲しがってるようなお宝レコードに間違いない。僕はすごい買いたいなと思ったけど、ちょっと貧乏すぎて無理なので、勝手に本人に連絡して、もし、この小ちゃいサイトのためにミックスを作ってくれたら、とっても嬉しいんだけど、と伝えてみた。
そしたら一ヶ月後・・・・ご覧の通り素晴らしいミックスを作ってくれました。しかも、このミックスはdj世界の中の大人気Bollywoodサンプラーじゃなく、マニアックな人でもきっと分からないやつばっかりの、南インドの70〜80年代の映画音楽です。このミックスをもらってから、ハマりにハマってるのでみなさんもぜひぜひ聞いてみてくださ〜い!!

 

I asked the man himself a few questions about Unconventional Science and the mix below:

So what brings Unconventional Science to India?    How long will you be staying?  Was your purpose vinyl?

なぜインドにいますか? どれぐらいいるつもり? もともとレコード探すためにきたの?
Im over here finishing my cultural anthropology degree and was engaged in a ethnomusicology research project on Naga Rock and Roll.  I think I’ll stay here for a year which means my time here will end when my visa expires in January.  My purpose here was to explore the music of India and try to find some new sounds.  The vinyl is just kinda the material that represents the heart and soul of this trip.  Definitely have become addicted to traveling now though.. so Ima ride this out voyage out as long as possible.

大学のためにNaga Rock and Rollを研究中です。一年間いるつもり、来年の一月でビザが終わっちゃうので。目的はインドの音楽を探索して、新しいサウンドを発見することでした。この旅の魂を象る物質が、レコードというわけです。 しかし、旅に完璧にはまちゃって、できるだけ長く旅を延ばしていきたいと思います。

You’ve obviously been active as a DJ and producer for while.  Were you a heavy crate digger before coming to India?

DJなど長くやっていましたが、インドにくる前もレコードハンターでした?

Yea absolutely.  I used to DJ on the patio at Funky Sole which always provoked me to keep a diverse crate of records.  I’ve been into records since I was 14 which is 12 years ago now.  I wouldn’t say that I have the deepest crates but I definitely have a lot of choice cuts and work every day to expand that.  I love music and have pretty much dedicated my life to hip hop and vinyl so hopefully I can keep working to find a way to support myself on those things.

もちろん。ロスのFunky Sole(けっこう評判高い)というイベントで回していたので、けっこう深いクレート(コレクション)を集めなければならなかった。今26歳で、14歳からレコードを買い始めました。僕のコレクションが一番深いとは決して言えないけど、いいものであることは間違いない。そして、もっと深くて、幅広いコレクションにするために一生懸命頑張っています。僕が音楽が大好きで、ほぼ自分の人生をヒップホップやレコードに捧げたので、できればそれで食べていけるように努力しています。

What’s the overall digging experience in India?  Do places tend to know what they have or are you just finding stuff randomly?  Any crazy record stories?

インドでレコードを発掘するという経験はどういう感じですか? レコード店自体は、いいものかだいたい分かっている? 

There are definitely some disgusting places to dig for records.  I had one attic I was going through that was full of all kinds of vermin.  All kind of records were eaten away by rats and cockroaches.  A few dudes here in Delhi really know their shit but most have a pretty skewed view of whats valuable.  Its always a battle with pricing but I’ve found a lot of really amazing stuff that Im super excited to bring back to the states.  Really looking forward to going down south in the next month to really dive in deep to the Kollywood record scene.

もちろん店にも行くけど、店だけじゃなくて、たまに本当に汚いところにもレコードを探しにいきます。あるとき、屋根裏部屋へ探しにいったんですが、ネズミとゴキブリだらけでした。レコードまで食べられていました。店の場合は、たまに何がいいか悪いのかがちゃんと分かっているオーナーがいるけど、その場合でも、価値に対する値段の付け方がおかしくて、 いつも値段のことで交渉しなきゃいけないけど・・・。今月南インドに行ってKollywoodのレコードシーンにどっぷりつかるのを本当に楽しみにしています。

Finally, a synopsis of the mix you’ve laid down for Oursoundtracks:
 
最後は、oursoundtracksに作ってくれたミックスの説明お願いします:

This is a compilation of south Indian 7″ records from the late 70s and early 80s, specifically  – 1979-1983 in Tamil Nadu. India’s modern music industry has almost always released music in the form of film soundtracks. It is for this reason that the music is so grandiose in nature. The Bollywood film industry was centered in Bombay, which is now named Mumbai, but there were other lesser known industries in Pujab, West Bengal, Rajasthan, Orissa, and more. Most notable of these were the films from the south centered in Madras which is now known as Chennai. They called it Kollywood, this was because of the Kodambakkam neighborhood which served as the center of the film industry of the south. The music is loose and energetic but is also laced with South Indian classical music which added a beautiful depth to the songs. The results were often loud drum machines, low fidelity synths, strings, flutes, and other funky elements put it for good measure. It feels like Bollywood without the kitsch. The epic nature of the compositions remain but the sound is much more raw. The stripped down garage studio sound is juxtaposed by funky arrangements for 20 piece ensembles is a wonderful aesthetic. The sounds are a fusion of musical styles rather than the one after another style found in most bollywood arrangements. This adds a much more consistent tone to the songs and leads to more organic sounding songs. These are a few records from this genre I found in an attic in Delhi. Not sure how rare they are but the music of South India is still largely unexplored. Get down to the funky traditional sound of Kollywood! 

このミックスは南インド70年代後半や80年代前半の45版ミックスです。インドの現代音楽はほとんど映画のサウンド・トラックの形で作られています。だからインドの音楽は自然と大掛かりなものになります。現在の地名はムンバイですが、主にインドの映画はボンベイという場所で製作されているので Bollywood(もちろんハリウッドにちなんで)と呼ばれています。ほとんどインド音楽が好きな人々はそこがメインと思っていますが、実はもっと知られていない小さな規模で製作されていたインド映画もあり、例えばパジャブ、ウェストベンガル、ラジャスタン、オリッサなどなど・・・。その中で最も興行を成功させていたのが、南インドのマドラスでした(現在:Chennai)。その映画製作の中心地がKodambakkam という場所だった為、それはKollywoodと呼ばれています。その音楽は、インド映画音楽らしく大げさでエネルギーに溢れていますが、それとともに南インドのクラシック音楽も織り込まれている為、美しい深みが加わっています。うるさいドラムマシーン、程度の悪いシンセサウンド、弦、管と・・・ちょっとおかしないろいろな物を念の為に入れる、という感じ。Bollywoodーキッチュ=Kollywoodといえば早いだろうか?壮大な曲の構成は残っているものの、音のクオリティはかなり低い。そのクオリティの低い、ガレージのようなスタジオで作り出される音はしかし、ビッグオーケストラが奏でるファンキーなアレンジと相まって非常に素晴らしい。このジャンルの数枚のレコードを、デリの屋根裏部屋で見つけました。これらがどれくらい貴重なものなのかはよくわからないが、南インドの音楽は未だにほとんど発見されていません。このファンキーな、そして伝統的なKollywoodサウンドを是非楽しんで!!

醗酵食品 Jams mix by miked @ Dublab

(Carmen Maki 7″ “Even if I die” – Words by Terayama Shuji) 

日本語は下にあります

As I mentioned on the Asakawa Maki post, when I was back home in LA in December I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to record a couple sets at the Dublab studios.

This set, unlike the Asakawa Maki set, was mainly on CDs and relatively void of forethought.  Also, this was my first time ever trying to use CDj machines, definitely threw me off…songs starting when they shouldn’t, general mood of panic – basically, flying by the seat of my cosmic pants…But hey, no better place to close our eyes and use the force of our cosmic pants than dublab!   At any rate, I just wanted to give a sampling of Japanese music that I’ve really been into  over the years since being here in Japan.  Before and since coming to Japan, the world of Japanese music has been a relatively tough shell to crack.   Of course there are some standard greats like all the Group Sounds stuff of the 60s, Fuzzed out craziness in the 70s (Raillez etc..), Boredoms, Cornelius etc. in the 90s and 00s, but at the same time you can often be quite hard pressed to find stuff that isn’t just crap or nice try, but that was already done before… Of course, the internet has changed the game enormously in recent years, but it took me years before I didn’t feel like finding a truly great Japanese artist was like finding a needle in haystack; or maybe I’m just getting used to needle hunting.

It also can be an extremely tough task to stay objective and distinguish between the truly great and the mediocre that just sounds good because a) you haven’t been able to find much else or b) because I’m more immersed in the culture than those who don’t live here and therefore like inexplicable/untranslatable things about.  Who knows.  You can be the judge.

Getting back to the task at hand.  In this mix I have tried to put together a mix where the audio-aesthetics would be for the most part agreeable to the pallets of lovers of odd music goodness and dublab listeners of course.  The first third of the mix is on vinyl the rest on cds.  It begins with some earlier traditional and early folk music numbers and works it’s way in out of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s… The title of the mix “Hakkoushokuhin” means “fermented foods”.  Fermentation is basically the soul of Japanese food (the heart being rice and soy beans).  Sake/Shochu, soy sauce, miso, natto, tsukemono to name a few.  In the same smelly, dark, and grimy spirit of this fermentation that makes Japanese food what it is and the people who they are I made this mix. (Yes, I’m being purposely ridiculous.)  There is still so much more I wanted to play, hopefully I’ll get around to it someday.  Till then,

Let’s eat.

このミックスはこの間アメリカに帰っていた時にDUBLABスタジオで作りました。僕が好きな曲や日本人じゃない方にも伝えられる曲をかけてみました。日本に住んでもう七年過ぎていますけど、いい日本の音楽を探すのは本当に時間かかりました。都会にいないと、面白い音楽が好きとか、詳しい人に出会うのは、何年かけても出会わない可能性が普通〜にある!東京に三年間住んで本当によかった〜はは。 ま、それはそれで、外人にとって日本の音楽とふれあい始めると色んな問題が出てくる;特にちょっとマニアックだとしたら。

まず、まだ全然いい音楽探せない頃、ちょっとでもカッコイイやつみつけたら大喜び〜♪ でも、やっぱりちゃんと聴くと、んんん〜やっぱりただ悪くなかっただけ?、そうしてやっぱり、日本にいない友達に特に聴かせなくてもいいかな〜。つまり、これは本当にいいものなのか、ただ日本のものだから好きなのか・・・。
もっと時間たったら、そこそこ本当にいい日本の音楽が集まってきたり、日本語をしゃべったり、文化などを理解したりするとまた違う問題が出てくる。。。本当にいいものなのに絶対に外国の音楽マニア達に通じない。例えば、忌野清志郎。私的にもう〜言葉にならないぐらい尊敬しているし、大好きな日本のロック武士。亡くなった時涙をこぼしました。ただ、そんな私でさえ、ほとんどの清志郎の音楽は音楽的に別にそんなに好きじゃない。バンドが普通で、音がきれいすぎてあんまり面白くない。ただ、清志郎が大好き、声は素晴らしい、素晴らしソングライター、ユーモアたっぷり、メッセージ深い。。。本当のロックンローラーでした。けど、やっぱり日本語分からない人にとってまず音楽を聴く。だから、外国のマニアたちにとって「裸のラリース」とか他のスーパーマイナーやつみたいなのとか、「ハッピーエンド」とかの方が通じる。でも日本でスーパーアンダーグラウンド音楽を聴いている方でもたぶん清志郎さんに対して大リスペクトしています。実はこのミックスに清志郎の曲四つぐらいかけようと思ったけど、結局二つになっちゃいました。わざとじゃなかったけど、結果的にない方がよかったかもしれない。日本人の方にとって入っていた方が楽しいと思っているけど、全体のミックス的に、そうして日本人じゃない方にとってみれば、やっぱりない方がよかったかな〜〜〜〜〜? ま、分からないけど。。 ;)持ってくるのは忘れた清志郎の曲たちは: ここへ
それで、もう一つの「問題」は、日本の古い音楽、民謡とか、にかんして、僕は全く分からないままで音楽聴いているので、本当にただ僕の心の中で響くやつしか選べない。。ま、純粋で一番いい立場だと思うけど、どれほど日本人に笑われている分からない、どんだけださいやつかけてるかどうか分かりません〜 でも、正直にいうと、僕の音楽マニア友達たちにとって絶対清志より民謡のほうが通じると思う。

なぜこのミックスに醗酵食品の名前を付けたかというのは、日本の料理のソウルは発酵したもの (ハートはやっぱりお米と大豆)だと思っていますので 、この臭い、暗い、汚い、時間のかかる(・・・言い過ぎだけど)でもうまい!醗酵食品を作る気持ちでこのミックスを作りました。普段はレコードでミックスを使っているので、今回初めてCDJの機械を使って、ちょっとめちゃくちゃ感がありますので。。。すいません

いただきましょうか?
