Nobukazu Takemura (???? born August 26th, 1968 in Osaka, Japan) started his DJ career during high school, spinning in the clubs of Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe. In 1987, he formed the DJ Team "Cool Jazz Productions", & in 1988, joined "Audio Sports", the now legendary hip-hop unit headed by Eye Yamatsuka of the Boredoms.
Around 1993 Takemura branched out as a solo artist in the 'talkin loud' jazzy trip-hop style prevelant at the time and releasing an excellent album "Child's View". The name highlighted one of the key themes in his music that is still prevalent. He tries to create melodies that musically capture a sense of wonder, a childlike innocence and curiosity.
Takemura has a huge catalog of collaborations with critically acclaimed artists from every corner of the world. These include Issey Miyake...
