Selections by Tyler Askew

Ever since I discovered his seminal album 'Child's View' in 1994, I have been a huge fan of Nobukazu Takemura (DJ Takemura) and the scene that developed around him in mid-90s Japan with labels like Bellissima!, Idyllic and Toy's Factory. There was a full on collision of influences from around the world, ranging from hip-hop and jazz to dub, Brasilian, drum&bass and more. What resulted was a special moment in time — here's just a taste.
