Nick Luscombe with a Cornelius mixtape

The enigmatic, experimental Japanese music star Cornelius compiles a mix of his musical favourites, including Nick Carter, Donovan, and Yoko Ono.

For the latest in our line of Late Junction mixtapes, Cornelius compiles thirty minutes of music for tonight's programme, featuring some of his all-time favourite artists, including Nick Carter, Donovan, and Yoko Ono.

Born Keigo Oyamadain Setagaya in 1969, Cornelius is an enigmatic, experimental, and internationally acclaimed DJ and recording artist. A performing musician since his teens, he first found fame as a member of Flipper's Guitar, one of the key groups of the Tokyo Shibuya-kei scene. In 1997, he released his debut solo album Fantasma, which saw him compared to Brian Wilson and Beck.

Cornelius has subsequently become a highly sought after producer, remixer, and soundtrack artist, working with the likes of Blur, Bloc Party, James Brown, and Edgar Wright. His first new album in 11 years, Mellow Waves, was released last June.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
