We believe underground producers and labels deserve special recognition!
This week’s feature is dedicated to a fresh techno outlet, a rising name on the scene – KI/KI.
From Amsterdam’s fertile underground to techno temples around the world, KI/KI is at the forefront of a new rave insurrection.
Shaped by the time-tried fundamentals of trance, acid and techno, she subtly constructs her own signature: a sound realm that’s fast but dreamlike, futuristic but nostalgic, severe but – at all times – euphoric.
Starting out as a resident DJ at queer stronghold Spielraum back in 2018, KI/KI has rapidly evolved into a nightlife bastion of her own. In the past years she’s made a mark with unforgettable all-nighters, curating her own ‘KI/KI invites’ series, upsurging Boiler Room views, and causing dancefloor frenzy from Säule to Bassiani to ∄.
As an artist, collaboration and community are essential to KI/KI’s craft. While festival stages and warehouses have become her second home, her heart still beats the loudest for the dark and intimate fringes of nightlife. Beyond music, this artistry bleeds into all forms of collaboration; resulting in, among others, her ‘not for sleeping’ project with Amsterdam fashion collective The New Originals.
On the verge of releasing her highly anticipated debut tracks as well as – spoiler alert – the buried treasures of like-minded producers, the storm that’s KI/KI is only just picking up.
