Kiki - Kaiku (Bpitch Control)

Kiki’s album is entitled Kaiku, which means echo in Finnish. The Berlin based Finn uses the echo and other sound effects in a masterful manner, in order to enhance the mood on this excellent technoid album. Utilising pointed percussive motifs, an arsenal of electronic sounds from the past, present and future, and the occasional vocal, Kaiku thrills on various levels. Winners include the string laced Autumn Leaves, a dizzyfying number entitled No Words Necessary and the apocalyptic Living On FFWD. Kaiku is a technoid treat that will reverberate in your mind like a satisfying musical echo.
