HIROSHIMA DJ'S INTRODUCTION
I think some of you have already noticed it, but I really love DJs.
They are so sexy en they put on their head-phones and hold them by their
sholder inclining their heads, and I can't stop gazing at their beautiful
fingers handling lots of records skillfuly on turn tables. They don't
just play music- they always talk to me with their grand musical tales,
and each tale shows the DJ's charactor. That's why I can't stop listening
to them, can't stop clubbing.
The set DJ Shimomura did at the party "Travelers Foundation" in
May 2002 at Ultra, and DJ Susumo's at "MALTI BOX" in Febrary
this year at China Town are both still in my mind, they keep reminding
me of parties that both were so cool.
So PEACE is going to introduce some
of our favorite DJs in Hiroshima here. We can't present all the DJs,
of course, but we had to interview
as many as we could, and we're gonna have this feature twice. We asked
them "what are the 3 top songs you're gonna play most this summer?" And
here are their answers.
Check their names on the flyers of this summer
Here are each DJ's recommendation of this summer. Artist/name of the

It's heavy! Cool heavy bass sound. Too cool! It always makes me heat up. Good
as the main Anthem! I play this one just to make myself happy, sorry!

The bass sound is almost annoying, I feel the viberation of it.
I'll strengthen my hip anyway.

And don't forget this one! It's the king of the summer songs,

I don't think this is good one for the club, so I always play
this one at home to chill-out.
||Roots & Kazuchang
1)Dr Alimantado/Rasta Train (upsetter)
This one was produced by Lee Perry in 1977. It reminds me of my childhood.

This is Burning Spear's from 1975. This makes me feel hot and dance! I recommend

This one is the opening song of the movie "Rockers". I love their chorus
work and the sound of horns. Kicked out in 1971.
give thanks to jah
1)LEE McDONALD/We've only just begun
I got this one by mail order. Lucky! It's has a very soulful flavor, but I
like the beat.

I often listened to this song playing on the FM radio. The READY
OR NOT version is cool!
3)ALTON ELLIS/I'm still in love
This is a famous piece of Reggae music, I think most of you might
have listened to it at least once before.
1)unknown artist/White Enemy
I'm a sucker for a cheeky bootleg, and this mash-up of the White Stripes and
Public Enemy is one of my favorites at the moment. Sure to turn a few heads.
2)DJ Quest (Cyberfunk)/Gravel Muncha
Quest's breaks are always heavy, but these mixes take things up a level.
Definite nosebleed material.
3)High Contrast (Hospital)/Twilights Last Gleaming
First release from the Welsh wonderboy's forthcoming album. Superb,
soulful, hands in the air drum'n'bass. Can't wait to play this
on a summer's night under the stars.
1)THE BLACK BYRDS/THE BLACK BYRDS(album)
A good Jazz Funk album. It has songs and instrumentals. It's really good for
2)ROY AYERS/CENTER OF THE WORLD(album)
This is bracing soul music. The sound of the metal xylophone
will make you refreshed!
3)JACKIE MITTOO/SHOW CASE vol.3(album)
The DUB music with funny beats. I really love this sound.
1)LORNA/PAPI CHULO(TE TRAIGO EL MMM)
It sounds stupid but very upper Latin shit! It's like dance hall music....
Memory Lane, one of the song in this album is definitely the
one for the summer!!
3)ABBA Father/Dub wise fire bum(Congo Natty)
This is from a Jungle label "Congo Natty" that I really
trust. But this one has a little bit of a roots music flavor.
