06/05/12 w/ AZ (Revelation Time)

Flick through the racks of my favourite record store. Run by Eiji Taniguchi (or ‘Az’ as he DJs under), Osaka’s Revelation Time is the promised land for enthusiasts of exotic ambient, psych rock, weirdo disco, world rhythms, reggae culture and everything in between. Meticulously curated without a shit record in sight. I spent four consecutive afternoons here, continually losing my mind over new discoveries and Eiji’s in tune suggestions, gaining enough fuel for six months of radio. Eiji even shut shop for a day to take me digging in neighbouring city Kobe, prompting my knowledge of Japanese grooves to expand tenfold. To think that he hasn’t already given enough, here is Az’s first recorded mix!
