Style: Sleek minimal techno mastery; wayward experiments in syncopation; shuffling off-kilter rhythms in sinister directions.
Labels: Kebko Music , Nervmusic, Contexterrior , op.disc

More: Many were first turned on to Kiyama’s dark and moody beats when she was featured on Richie Hawtin’s futuristic DE9 | Transitions compilation in 2005.

Guided by a love of sleek beats and industrial bass and singularly moody experiments in syncopation, Tokyo’s minimal techno sorceress Akiko Kiyama has been dispensing off-kilter rhythms and textures that veer into sinister directions for well over a decade. With her new, more experimental project, Aalko, arrhythmic patterns are engineered, BPM boxes stretched out and irregular time signatures embraced.
