Oto Nova Japan: Mari* with Norio (rare groove) // 22-03-21

Tune in for Oto Nova Japan, a show introducing a new wave of artists and music coming out of Japan, with Worldwide FM’s senior producer and Gilles Peterson’s longtime radio collaborator, Mari*! Mari* is joined by Norio- DJ, music selector and owner of record shop ‘rare groove’ in Osaka, Japan. He has recently worked on the compilation “Heisei No Oto - Japanese Left-field Pop From The CD Age (1989-1996)’ released from Music From Memory. The compilation was compiled by Norio and AZ (Eiji Taniguchi), the owner of record shop ‘Revelation Time’ in Osaka. On this show, Norio chats to Mari* about the process of making the compilation and shares a mix made with music from the Heisei era. Heisei is the period of Japanese history corresponding with the reign of Emperor Akihito from 8 January 1989 until his abdication on 30 April 2019. Oto Nova album of the month is “The Essence of Soil” - the very first Jazz cover album by Japan’s death Jazz band SOIL&“PIMP”SESSIONS.
