Daniel Avery DJ-Kicks on !K7 Records

DJ-Kicks: Daniel Avery Mix Colour Palette

This colour palette is derived the album cover for Daniel Avery’s new 78-minute techno mix for DJ-Kicks being released this Friday. The palette carries on in the footsteps of the black, gray and white trend we’ve been seeing this fall – and we don’t anticipate it ending anytime soon. We heard that when these colours are used in a particular fashion, one can create a hypnotic space that resembles the club darkness of night where Daniel Avery is playing.

Sun Ra / Merzbow – Strange City

Sun Ra / Merzbow’s New Album Colour Palette

This colour palette is inspired by the album from Sun Ra / Merzbow called Strange City. This shades in the palette characterise a meeting of light meets dark, the basis of the album where Merzbow’s overcast noise wall intricately drapes the cosmic rays of Sun Ra. Use these colours in your work to infuse a similar contrast.

Telefon Tel Aviv – Fahrenheit Fair Enough Re-Issue

Telefon Tel Aviv’s Colour Palette from Yesteryear

This colour palette is taken from Telefon Tel Aviv’s soon to be re-issued album Fahrenheit Fair Enough from 2001. While the colour palette certainly has a Fall 2001 vibe to it, enough time has passed inbetween then and now that it has become a trend palette for Winter 2017.

Use these colours before the 2nd December 2016 (when the album is re-released on Ghostly International) to be way ahead of the curve, or use them after this date to show your solidarity for old music that still sounds new.

Style of Sound Premiere: Haioka – Riwaindo

Haioka’s New Album Colour Palette

This colour palette is taken from Haioka’s second album called Riwaindo, which is Japanese English (Jenglish) slang for “Rewind” – and coincidentally Haioka’s way of describing his art as tracing back the roots of Japanese music.

The strong Haoika black, grays and solitary red hark back to the olden days days of Japan, and when used in your own projects, they can evoke a feeling of tradition and sensibility – something which never goes out of style.

Listen to Riwaindo

Upon listening to Riwaindo, one can’t help but to feel like one has stepped into a slow-moving time machine which whirrs back and forth between old and new Japan.

On the album, Japanese old style drums “Wadaiko” player Atsuhiro Cho supports Haioka on his musical journey and almost all unique drum sounds in this album are played by him.

The album also features Argentinian experimental artist and fellow Red Bull Academy Tokyo alumnus Plasma Rüby known for his latest remix for Nils Frahm.
