DJ Nozaki is a Japanese DJ and all-round dance legend who recorded this special mix for i-D at Forestlimit basement in Hatagaya, Tokyo. It expertly traverses dance-related genres and includes a forthcoming 10" ZZZ-1111(303+808) as special hip house track home made by DJ Nozaki himself, and featuring HibahihiI aka Nipps & Munacat, to close the mix. 

After playing a legendary party at the Buffalo Club five years ago, DJ Nozaki is back in Australia and to celebrate he's presented us with this gift below.

Music to shift your mood from staying in to staying up all night... 
Oh what, wow.

Music for fiery arguments and emotional goodbyes…
He's the greatest dancer

Music to kiss and make up to…
One night in a disco

Music to heal a broken heart…
Outskirts of Frisco

Music to get high to…
Cruisin' with my favorite gang

Music to change your night from mediocre to magnificent…
The place was so borin'

Music to take a long drive to…
Out-of-towners tourin'

Music to walk down the aisle to…
Really wasn't carin'

Music you'd like played at your funeral…
Eyes starin'

Music to have sex to…
Shame Adonis

Music to celebrate your birthday to…
The disco alone

Music guaranteed to give you serious swagger…
Crme de la crme

Music to make even the wallflowers dance…
Halston

Music to play at the afterparty when it's 6am and the sun is beginning to rise...
Gucci

Music that could put even an insomniac to sleep...
Fiorucci
