05/06/13 w/ Chida

Chida, party starter and passionate force behind record label ENE, is one of the great facilitators of the underground Tokyo scene. While most Japanese imprints have a very domestic concentration, Chida is more interested in bridging the gap between his country and the Western world, issuing a carefully selected combo of artists and remix producers from both sides – The Backwoods, Cos/Mes, Tiago and Lord of the Isles to name a few. For a DIY vinyl only label, it has generated international recognition as a trademark of quality.

A phenomenal DJ and talented producer, you can find Chida Djing in Tokyo most weekends, usually at concealed listening hole Aoyama Tunnel or commanding the heaving dance floor at club Eleven. Andrew Weatherall recently playlisted his production ‘Danca’, originally co-released with US allies ESP Institute as a fundraiser for Japan’s earthquake and tsunami relief, on his entry into the Ministry of Sound Masterpiece series.

For this special Noise In My Head contribution, he reels in all his cronies for a 100% local affair.
