NEW RELEASE – Kiko King & creativemaze – Resolution for Solitude (Official Video)

New Single & Video
Release Date: 23rd December 2016 | Label: Mesanic Music

Thriving on a universal energy, American-German pair Kiko King & creativemaze are mighty keen on the profound and have pieced together a new single filled with thought-provoking, intense sounds that show an unbridled creative genius. This time around they’ve worked with unmistakable trip-hop pioneer Tricky who has lent the pair a hand in creating their latest masterpiece with his extensive experience.

‘Resolution for Solitude’ – the first single from their recently released Gnothi Seauton album – sees the Berlin-based duo combine hard-hitting lyrics with a beat that’s just as powerful. With a stark contrast between stark, open messages and pulsing infectious rhythms they use their combined forces to create sounds that manage to blur lines while being crystal clear about their intentions.

With an electro-minimal wave style they create a sense of hypnosis as Kiko King’s heartfelt lyrics layer above uncompromising beats from creativemaze to push the pair’s message while providing a welcome treat for the ears. They both let their masks drop away for this latest hit which sees them become more open and honest than ever before as clever turns of phrase combine with a semi-dystopian backdrop.

The pair use their cross-media project to create what they label ‘Airbendermusic’ which sees them break away from standardised creative moulds and explore an area of music in which few dare to tread. This latest gem comes off the back of a busy couple of years which has seen them busy releasing three EPs and travelling half the world on tour with the electronic-art musical legends GusGus and Massive Attack.

Very little tangible information is known about the enigmatic duo except that the combining of their forces was accidental and it happened in 2011 in Berlin, Germany. With the video for ‘Resolution for Solitude’ they use a visual openness to plant their message directly in the viewer’s hands while mesmerising the eyes with a selection of rapid-fire glimpses of different styles, perhaps hinting at how they ended up here.

Inspired by a healthy mix of imagination and perfectionism, Kiko King & creativemaze are lining up to stamp their mark on the musical world in a bigger way than ever before…

Sometimes our personal experiences are so profound we can’t describe them concretely. This is the realm in which Berlin, Germany’s Kiko King & creativemaze thrive in with the artistic ideals they have titled “Airbendermusic.” The duo’s debut EP, Intellect Illuminated (Mesanic Music), expresses bold sensations with an invigorating blend of chill beats, haunting atmospherics, and uplifting hooks.

“For us, it’s about the feeling conveyed in the music, that’s more important than genres or musical approaches,” creativemaze explains. “Eliciting a reaction from the listener is way more important than having the person being able to identify subject matter or categorize us based on instrumentation.”

The Intellect Illuminated EP is the first installment of Kiko King & creativemaze’s music. The seven-song EP (including a remix) was carefully crafted from a catalog of 140 songs. The tracks share an ethereal beauty anchored by gritty and propulsive basslines, soaring vocal melodies, and poetically abstract lyrics. The leadoff single “Cramps” is an intriguing mix of ominous atmospheric electronica, infectious melodies, and gorgeous vocals that manage to be as sinister as they are sensual. The song’s accompanying video reflects this bold contrast of danger and desire.

“Cramps” is also revisited on the EP as an extended and entrancing remix. On “Basquiat,”Kiko King & creativemaze immortalize the neo-expressionist in abstract splendor with evocative wordplay, sweetly atmospheric melodies, and diced up beats. Other EP highlights are “The Last Airgender” which contrasts dreamy melodicism with a stirring and disquieting chorus, and “Illusions of Time ft. Jorlyn-Selina” which features a captivating acoustic guitar motif and smoldering female vocals.

Very little tangible biographic background is known about the enigmatic duo except that their destination moment was accidental and it happened in 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Their respective creative responsibilities can loosely be summed up by saying Kiko writes the lyrics and vocal and melodies, and creativemaze composes the music. Both musicians have a penchant for sublime poignancy. Kiko’s lyrics exhibit an abstract beauty much like a William Burroughs cut-up poetry. creativemaze is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and audio engineer with a refined sense of melody, dynamics, and arrangement. His fingerprint aesthetic defies genres and categories.

But the surrounding mystique isn’t meant to be exclusive or insider-y, it’s about the desire to keep a level of purity in the music. “It really is about the freedom of feelings and everyone’s unique experience of the music. Even when I ask Kiko what his lyrics mean, he responds, ‘What are you hearing?’ That emotional reaction is more important than a singular interpretation,” creativemaze reveals.

Kiko King & creativemaze recently came stateside touring with pioneering electronic music group GusGus and will continue to Europe supporting the Icelandic band before returning home to ready its second EP. Pressed to describe the aesthetic on that one, creativemaze says it could be metal, singer-songwriter, or electronica. “We keep ourselves open to the flow, and work hard to capitalize on the energy presented to us,” he says “There shouldn’t be thinking in the creative process.”

New Release – Dirtyphonics – Write Your Future Remixes

Dirtyphonics continues to pump the bass-driven electro beats with the release of a diverse 4-track remix compilation of their most recent EP, Write Your Future. Preserving Dirtyphonics’ iconic bass driven / drum and bass sound, the remixers prove that genres truly have no boundaries by adding their own touch to each of the original tracks. FuntCase amplifies the punk rock guitar riffs and angsty drumline of “Power Now” by adding wild build-ups that break down into heavy, hard-hitting dubstep. Habstrakt gives “Hustle Hard” the future bass treatment, adding a distinctive 4/4 twist to the original trap banger. High Maintenance makes full use of the powerful female vocals in “Free Fall” but converts the original’s dubstep drops into a vision of perfect drum and bass. Finally, Infuze concludes the EP with a future bass rendition of “Since You’ve Been Gone,” slowing the original’s drum and bass tempo with anthemic synths and heavy drums.

Here is the music video for my new single titled HEAD OF THE FAMILY.
The track and video is dedicated to and celebrates the life of my grandfather, Sewa Singh, who passed away January 2014.
The music takes a prayer and gives it an electro drum and bass treatment. It’s a very abstract and hybrid piece of musical work.

My brother and best friend Jora found me a derelict house with a broken piano which i felt was perfect for the backdrop. A huge thank you to Mrs. Paskaran for the house, Jesal Patel for her beautiful depiction of the track, Sep for his wicked street dance interpretation, Debipriya Sircar for her beautiful vocals and my grandfather for the inspiration.
I composed/produced the track and filmed/edited the music video.
