Kiki Hitomi @ arte Tracks TV Nice little feature about Kiki Hitomi on arte Tracks TV the other day. (HERE is the French version). → arte Tracks TV → Karma No Kusari LP
Belt up for a mind-altering journey through time and space stopping by Japanese enka, 8-bit psychedelica and mutated digi dub on this genre-defying long player from King Midas Sound’s Kiki Hitomi and Jahtari bossman disrupt.
Kiki Hitomi painting the artwork for Roger Robinson’s “Dog Heart City” tape all done with the water colors of our kid – that was five bucks well-spent! Final artwork looks very hypnotic in real size. Glasses can be taken off as well. → DOG HEART CITY → ROGER ROBINSON → KIKI HITOMI
Kiki Hitomi “Karma No Kusari” video Yōkai style. Filmed in Leipzig’s swampy forest in summer 2016, alongside swarms of bloothirsty mosquitos. Watch out for that album! → KARMA NO KUSARI → KIKI HITOMI
Compilation of modern, experimental Japanese female artists gathered to echo the stylistic richness of the ’Tokyo Flashback’ series issued by P.S.F. in the early ‘90s. Out on the brilliant Akuphone label from Paris.
There’s a new Kiki Hitomi track on there called “Gain and Lose”, her first outing since her “Karma No Kusari” album from 2016! Comes with a beautiful portfolio booklet, Bandcamp download code and Akuphone sticker & postcard! Lovely release!
For the diggers: you can spot the original instrumental dub cut on disrupt‘s “Recreation Room” LP, it’s called “The Souls Formula” – ears peeled!
