Shinichi Atobe (dj)
AUG 1 / Shelter
Shinichi Atobe’s career sounds like a tall tale. A low-key player in ’90s dub techno outlet Chain Reaction, sending DAT tapes from Japan to Germany at a time when this was by no means simple, Atobe’s output suddenly ceased in 2001. He remained in the shadows until a hunt by fellow Dekmantel Festival 2019 guests Demdike Stare was successful, setting in motion a fresh stream of golden releases, including last year’s celebrated house-leaning LP "Heat". Even basic photos of him are hard to come by, so we are thrilled to host an exceedingly rare DJ set from the mysterious maestro.
