A bright and colourful scenery: Shrill blinding sights, piercing foreign sounds, a fusion of disparate scents blended into a cocktail of curiosity. Fleeting attempts embrace a thousand senses in one single second. Bustling around in the shadows of buildings as high as mountains, an almost eerily overwhelming sense of contentment is omnipresent – but something doesn’t appear to be right…
Stranded on a lonely island in the midst of a chaotic metropolis, disconnected – a feeling of drowning in an ocean of overstimulus and importunities of disproportionately inflated personalities, without ever even being registered or taken notice of.
What’s left is nothing more than the ghost of a young soul, wandering about and curiously studying the surrounding, forever looking for answers that would otherwise seem trivial.

After “Kidsuke” the critically acclaimed collaboration project with Daisuke Tanabe, “Tokyorkshire” based producer kidkanevil continues his fascination with Japan and readies his latest solo album My Little Ghost. Inspired by a summer spent in Tokyo collaborating, exploring and generally refusing to grow up, the cd is due April 30th on flau and features a wide range of guests including flau's Cuushe , Cokiyu, Submerse, Lullatone, Tetsuya Hikita and Phasma.

 

‘My Little Ghost’ comes out worldwide on limited edition CD from flau as well as a imited double vinyl (including download code) via Project Mooncircle.

ヒップホップ、ビート、エクスペリメンタル・エレクトロニクスを自由自在に行き来する真に革新的で実験精神に溢れたイギリス・ヨークシャーのプロデューサーKidkanevilのニューアルバム。地下世界からやってきたゴーストチャイルドの東京での冒険を描いた、架空のアニメのサウンドトラックを模したという本作。昨年の夏、実際にKidkanevilが東京に滞在、Cokiyu、Cuushe、Phasma、疋田哲也ら日本人アーティストとのセッションを録音しながら、東京を彷徨い歩き、アニメの主人公と自身の体験を重ね合わせて作られたコンセプチュアルな作品になっています。チャーミングな音使い、最新のベースミュージックに目配せするグリッヂの効いたビート、どこか壊れたノスタルジーを感じるドリーミーなメロディーの数々に、私たちはKidkanevilが夢想するユニークな都市の姿を感じることでしょう。盟友Chris James(Stateless)、Submerse、Lullatoneらがゲスト参加。こちらのアルバムはベルリンのレコードレーベルProject Mooncircleとの共同リリースとなっています。
