King Midas Sound on Ninjatune
After leaving London for Leipzig, she’s spent the last three years working on a solo project alongside Jahtari label boss Disrupt, resulting in her debut solo album Karma No Kusari (Chain Of Karma), a mind-altering journey through time and space, stopping by Japanese Enka and J-Pop, vintage electronics, 8-bits psychedelic and mutated deep fried dig dub. The LP unfolds piece by piece, with Kiki’s otherworldly tone of voice providing a ghostly atmosphere that is at times unsetting but always achingly beautiful. Album artwork was by Kiki Hitomi herself, making Karma No Kusari an indispensable joint for any true space cadet.
