Crown Ruler Mix #20 —
Back with another sure fire mix for your ears – this time from NYC diggin devotee Yuki Noji.
A timely mix, as Yuki only last week wrapped up 8 years working behind the counter at storied East Village institution, A1 Records. Yuki and her partner have made the decision to return to their native Japan and begin an exciting new chapter in their lives (where sharing music will be a central focus naturally).
One of New York’s most respected record nuts, Yuki has been a constant presence by those in the know. Since 2006 she has co-run the infamous Cedar Room, a much celebrated party that has been said to evoke feelings of Mancuso’s The Loft. Before A1 she also had jaunts with both Academy Records and Fat Beats respectively. Her discerning taste is acknowledged by some of the city’s most authoritative figures and her reputation has led to invites to play heavyweight parties like You’re A Melody and Mobile Mondays. One can regularly hear her on The Lot radio where she shares her bag full of eclectic, uncovered gems. An essential listen.
Yuki has delivered a deep and delightful listen from start to finish on this one. Touching on eccentric dub, lovers rock and modern soul nuggets, bent boogie and left-field disco, this mix is the soulful nourishment you need to get you through the week.
