Kuniyuki Takahashi is a sound designer and producer who is based and works in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. In 1994, he started his solo musical career. In 1997, as FRR HIVE, he released a mini album which was released on CD and 12INCH from the BASSMENTAL label. And in 1998, he had been participated in the RAINBOW 2000 outdoor festival in Japan, as a member of HOSONO HARUOMI(YMO) group.


He is no doubt one of Japan’s best kept secrets. International DJ’s such as Joe Claussell, Dego, DJ Cosmo, Jimpster to name but a few, have been falling over themselves when they heard his produced tracks. Now, some of them have been releasing his works through their own labels. He has also been working closely with the soundofspeed crew over the past few years and releasing his works on their own label and performing live with them in their famed parties which are held regularly in Tokyo, as well as the Big Chill (UK) and events around Europe and Australia. Check out the ever-consistent and surprisingly prolific producer out of Sapporo, Kuniyuki Takahashi!

SVBKVLT LAUNCH & POSTER EXHIBITION – MUSIC + FILM

Published April 17, 2013 by subcultureshanghai

This Sunday at On Stage, to celebrate the launch of SVBKVLT and Idle Beats’ exhibition of all the Sub-Culture posters from the last 3 years, we have invited some of our favorite local live acts to join in on the fun. Here is a run down on who will be performing/showcasing their work on the day.

 

MENGQI

MengQi 1

Producing electronic music since the age of 14, Beijing’s MengQi is one of the most individual and interesting electronic musicians around. As well as his stall selling his own hand-made synths and effect boxes, MengQi will be performing a showcase using only his own DIY instruments to show what his inventions are capable of.

 

FADED GHOST

ChaCha- 2

Faded Ghost is the new solo project from Sub-Culture’s ChaCha. Dark, brooding synth works, drones, echos and warped vocals, Faded Ghost sounds like little else coming out of China. She will be performing a DJ/FX set, including new, forthcoming SVBKVLT material.

 

S L V

Hamacide and Downstate’s S L V project is by far one of the best live electronic acts in Shanghai right now. Their debut performance at Sub-Culture a couple of months back was the perfect way to kick off Sub-Culture in 2013, and we are very excited to present their second Shanghai performance for the SVBKVLT launch.

 LON

LON has had more leaving parties in Shanghai than we can remember, and he also makes some of the strangest music we’ve heard around these parts too. We aren’t sure what he will play, and probably he isn’t either, but we are sure its going to be something quite special.

 

The Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Monster Mash

JEKYLL HYDE  3 faces

Following the success of last year’s performance opening for the Devil Music Ensemble & this year’s performance for Jue Festival Acid Pony Club and Tina Sprinkles will expand and create a live cinematic landscape titled “Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Monster Mash”

Live Cinema can be described as a situationist audiovisual performance. Tina Sprinkles will be re editing and mashing up 3 different versions of the classic film Dr Jekyll& Mr Hyde, produced in 1920,1931 & 1941  creating a new narrative through live layering and video.  Acid Pony Club will be generating a unique audio landscape in direct response to the visual manipulation. The result is psychedelic, transcendental and challenges preconceived ideas and expectations of the cinematic experience.

 

Hiro Ikematsu – Short Movie

Enter the world of John Raster. After he learns of his death during a skeptical job interview, he is forced to choose whether to accept or reject a life after death. This is an experimental film that uses electronic music in replacement of dialogue. Set in an industrial warehouse, It is essentially a modern musical of a man in purgatory coming to terms with his death.
