...so, errr.... who's this dude anyways?
They say that a name exerts great influence on one's destiny, and with a name that expresses the will to "stretch boundaries to breaking point" and "passionately strive further than any other has dared before" London-based producer/DJ HARIKIRI inevitably breaks the mould.
His aural landscape is undeniably unique, merging the obvious influence of growing up in the UK with a tightly woven Caribbean rhythmic backbone and an Asian undertone acquired from long periods living in China and Japan; all fleshed out by a technical itch gained from years engineering dark, dungeon forms of electronic music.
With burgeoning support from notable media outlets like Mad Decent, Timeout, K-Mag, and with global tastemakers like Munchi, Rinse.FM's Scratcha DVA, Afrikan Boy and others as advocates, HARIKIRI is set to emerge from under-the-radar with all guns blazing. Tour dates throughout Asia and Europe have seen him share the stage with a diverse array of artists such as Fat Boy Slim, Noisia, Joker, Chase & Status, Foreign Beggars, Icicle, Instra:mental, Oxide & Neutrino, at a range of venues including London’s Fabric and even in Beijing on the Great Wall of China.
