In the Record Bag: Tomoh
By MARK JARNES
When talking to bands from Kyoto, DJ Tomoh's name often comes up. So The Japan Times tracked him down to see what's in his record bag.
Golden oldie: La Bionda — "I Wanna Be Your Lover" (Baby Records). A disco classic. The music video is great, too.
New classic: Arp — "Catch Wave" (Smalltown Supersound). The No. 1 song of the year outside of the clubs. Rising above structuralism and everyday life, it is the hope of all minimalists.
Floor-filler: Duck Sauce — "Barbara Streisand" (Fools Gold). My happiest song now. These may be serious times, but there's no need for serious dance floors.
Must-listen: Hotel Mexico — "It's Twinkle" (Second Royal Records). Indie anthem of 2010. Whether it's performed live or as part of a DJ set, it's sure to get the crowd going.
Tomoh spins at Metro in Kyoto on Dec. 17; Karma in Osaka on Dec. 30; and Nano in Kyoto on Dec. 31. For more information and downloadable mixes, visit www.tomohomot.blogspot.com.
