PRESS FEEDBACK:

"These tracks are meticulously calibrated and elegantly involing; and even at their most kinetic." - The Wire (US/UK)

"7 Years doesn't work on along the beauty/sadness axis reserved for the likes of Junior Boys. Her music is more sullen with hints of something otherworldly. Most of Kiyama's songs sound close to minimal locked grooves but with subtle variations in one or two of the elements. When this works well, it's both hypnotic and opium-like." - Resident Advisor

"Was den oft perkussiven Longplayer in seiner Dramaturgie besonders macht, ist die Tatsache, dass sich die Japanerin nur selten offensichtlich auf den Club konzentriert. Stattdessen fordert sie mit nicht zu direkt drŸckenden Bassdrums ein von der TanzflŠche losgelšstes Hšren ein." - Groove (DE)

"With laptop and MIDI controller in tow, she works her live sets into intricately woven expanses of funk." - Mixmag (UK)

"Kiyama has a knack for turning her abstract gloom into magnificently slinky, trippy music." - The Guardian (UK - 4/5 Stars)

"Everyone's favourite techno-geek drops her debut [album] on District of Corruption, showing that she's as adept at making a bold seventy minute journey, as at churning out banging 12's like Isotope." - The Skinny (UK) "...This is one of the best club orientated albums I've heard for a long time with it's deep, dark and trippy techno shining above some very mediocre music around recently." - M8 (UK) "Well worth checking out, now and in the future. 5/5 stars" - Sound Judgement


DJ FEEDBACK:

"Great Album!! Playing Ant already!!" - Loco Dice (Cadenza, Cocoon)

"Ant is a real Jam!" - Butane (Alphahouse)

"8/10 played at DC10" - Andrew Grant (Circo Loco, Plastic City)

"Quirky and fun" - Dan Curtin (Tuning Spork / DoC)

SWEET SORROW EP
(DOC 005)

A Sweet Sorrow
B Scientology
  PDX Rox


The title track of this release, "Sweet Sorrow," is a farewell to the post 9/11 US for DOC label owner, Aaron Hedges. "When Washington reached a point where I could not walk into a record store and buy a techno record I asked myself what am I still doing here?" states Hedges. DOC has permanently relocated to Berlin. You almost feel the pains of moving yourself with the title track, "Sweet Sorrow." ? farewell to friends, family, country but with the joy and hope of a better life. Purely emotive techno one that track! "Scientology" is a super funky tech house track that will surprise and entertain techno, house, and progressive heads alike. Lastly, "PDX Rox" is a re-exploration of 808 / 909 minimalist percussion with nasty acid sounds and hardcore drum programming; dancers beware!

JAMBI
CHANGING STATES EP
(DOC 004)

A Inaction
B Reaction
  Action


Jambi's Changing States E.P. was written in just that way, he literally was relocating from the post-September 11 states to the graffiti laden city of Berlin. Being a foreign national, Jambi left the states seeking the political and artistic asylum of the berliner Luft. The first track, Inaction, is anything but! Rather it's a 4 to the floor funky techno melt down designed to drown a dancefloor with sweat. Reaction is the record you want to drop to win the party over. Bring down the house with this sleek and sexy tech-house dirty bomb. Lastly, Action, will keep balance right as it's hypnotic grooves and eerie melodies sneak into your heart.

LE BFK
NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER EP
(DOC 003)

A Not Without My Daughter - Jambi rmx
  Email Tokyo - Aaron Hedges rmx
B Not Without My Daughter
  Email Tokyo
  3 Not Without My Daughter - snatchapella
  4 Unprotected


Le B.F.K.'s premiere release has already turned clubs inside out internationally. It has been spun by the likes Larry Tee at his now infamous "Berliniamsburg" parties and has even gained the attention of Kid 606 of Tigerbeat. DOC's Aaron Hedges has dropped this E.P. on unsuspecting party goers on dancefloors from Capetown to Berlin.

Le B.F.K. has performed internationally in Paris & at the second Electroclash festival in NYC. The Not Without My Daughter title track vocalist, Snatcharella, is now in jail. The remaining members, Petrie la Mode and Girard Fairmont XIV continue on with lyrical insanity about sexual fetishes, J-Pop culture, and a searing social commentary on Northern America's growing bareback community.

Jambi's remix appeals to techno, italo, and progressive heads alike whereas Aaron's remix takes Le B.F.K.'s tounge-in-cheek electro craziness to another level with driving minimal funky-techno beats. This is the realness bitches.

JAMBI
ALWAYS MONDAY EP
(DOC 002)

Jambi's premiere release promises to make waves in the techno arena. Jambi's remix work was featured on the last Jeff Mills mix cd and his original production has gotten the attention of Richie Hawtin, Justin Robertson, Christian Smith, Tobi Neumann, Dinky, and Magda. District of Corruption founder, Aaron Hedges has featured this E.P nationally on XM Radio.

Conceptually the Nohouse E.P. requires the listener to know house. Jambi strips down familiar house elements and fuses them into a funky-techno maelstrom. 'Always Monday' (a1) is a driving groovy tech track that was inspired by Christian Smith and Viktor Mizo's 3-year strong weekly; Tronic Treatment. Aaron Hedges gives 'Always Monday' (a2) the DOC spin with pulsating dirty beats, acid madness, and hauntingly lucid vocals about party burnout. 'Next One Is Real' (b1) is a four to the floor big room tribal techno stormer. The closing track, 'Rejack' (b2) is a stainless steel joint with massive crossover appeal to both techno and house camps guaranteed to make you jack your body.
