Take 5 with Noema

David Benjamin, aka Noema, has been delivering his unique brand of transglobal psychedelia across Europe for much of the the past decade. Noema’s DJ sets are deeply eclectic and flit with deft ease from genre to genre, being as much known for their sexy, deep and hypnotic flavour, ranging from scandalous disco and cocky pop, as they are for their bouncy house and techno, combined in a highly energetic style. We took great pleasure in sitting down with him to Take 5.

1. Nicola Cruz – Colibria [ZZK Records]
“Amazing tune by one of my favourite producers at the moment. Nicola has an unique way of combining the musical heritage of his country, or even continent, with modern electronic music. Love it!”
2. Carrot Green – Brazilian Shakedown #2 [Brazilian Shakedown]
“Another favourite producer of mine! I haven’t heard any music by him i don’t like. I can’t get enough of this collection of mixes, especially the second tune, Movimento. Soooooooo good!!!!”
3. Sphynx – No Ar [The Magic Movement]
“I can’t get enough of this neo-balearic funk by Sphynx aka Marcio Vermelho and Zopelar from Sao Paulo. Marcio is one of the best Djs i know, and no less blowing my mind as a producer! Brazil’s best kept secret!”
4. Lower Spectrum – Khlever [Lower Spectrum]
“Super trippy slow-mo shizzle. Exactly how I like it!”
5. Arthur Russel – Get Around To It [Rough Trade]
“You gotta love Arthur Russel! So unique, pure and poetic. A true classic.”
