A leading name on the local music indie circuit — having played Spring Love, SonarSound and Nagisa Music Festival in Tokyo earlier this month — DJ, producer and label owner Altz opens up his record bag.

Golden oldie: The Roosterz — “All Alone” (Nippon Columbia): By a Japanese band from the 1980s. A song which takes away a long day’s worth of fatigue.

New classic: The Barking Dogs vs. Jessie Evans — “Scientist of Love” (Mad On the Moon): The Barking Dogs are a disco-loving duo, riding the Milano disco wave. The guys are pretty much my second family.

Floor filler: Asymmedley — “Akashic Rain” (Altzmusica): This is some beautiful rain music! The kind of tune that almost makes you a rainy-day type of person.

Must listen: Shota Sakamoto — “Piman #2” (Altzmusica): Two words: “pop” and “fantasy.”
