Nobukazu Takemura is a Japanese musician whose style has run from jazz to house to drum and bass to chamber music to electronic glitch within less than a decade. Born in Hirakata, Osaka in August 1968, he became interested in punk and New Wave music at a young age, and by high school, after a record store job that exposed him to Jazz and Hip hop, he had regular gigs as a battle DJ.
In 1990, Takemura founded Audio Sports with Yamatsuka Eye (of The Boredoms) and Aki Onda. Their first album, Era of Glittering Gas, was released in 1992 (after which Onda subsequently took control of the project), the same year as Takemura's first solo album, under the name DJ Takemura. He has also released material with Spiritual Vibes (since 1993) and as Child's View (since 1994). He is currently paired with Childisc vocalist/composer Aki Tsuyuko
