19/02/12 w/ Norio (Rare Groove)

Last October’s trip to Osaka wouldn’t have been nearly as memorable had I not been in the hospitable company of Norio – the owner of Rare Groove, a record shop located in the Shinsaibashi district. A must-go for any digger, many of the cuts spun on the show in recent months were pulled from these racks (walkthrough the shop via Empty Sleeve). Norio was kind enough to throw me a welcome party at Panorama Bar, where DJs played mind blowing tracks for seven hours straight and Miho behind the bar served the best Japanese curry that I’ll ever eat. Norio’s dedication, vast knowledge and impeccable taste would rival anyone so it’s no surprise that he’s also an extraordinary DJ. Aside from his monthly appearances on U-Stream online broadcasting channel ChillMountain HutteTV, there is no document of this until now.
