Heading up his forthcoming Gigolo album release,'House Music', coming
in May 2009, Australia's Kikumoto
Allstars brings his second single release to DJ Hell’s
International Deejay Gigolo imprint: The‘House Music’ EP.
In the spirit of
the original Chicago acid house of Marshall
Jefferson, Larry Heard and Adonis,
and with the intensity of modern dance, comes the Kikumoto Allstars aka
DJ/Producer Cam Farrar.
Kikumoto Allstars holds a candle to the original house music with
screaming acid basslines and melodic moments that made this pioneering
dance music so great.
intentionally retro, his music is informed by today's dance with
innovative arrangements and twisted, peaking crescendos. The Kikumoto
Allstars remind us that acid house music is back and bigger than ever:
YOU STILL CAN'T STOP THE HOUSE!
'House Music' and 'Bending Time'look back to acid in a forward thinking
way. Designed for the Peaktime Dancefloor, Kikumoto Allstars gives you
the right to party.
Kikumoto Allstars AKA Cam Farrar was first drawn to electronic music
when he saw Devo on Australian
television in the early 1980’s. As a teenager, inspired by punk and new
wave, Farrar began his career in bands, hitting the skins and song
writing. With the 90’s dance music revolution underway Farrar was swept
up. Australia was now experiencing it’s own halcyon days with warehouse
and bush parties beating through the musical landscape. The DIY ethos
of dance appealed and Farrar quickly picked up the skills.
Kikumoto Allstars music is produced with all analogue synthesizers and
drum machines including the famous Roland range (TR-909, TR-808,
TR-707, SH-101, Juno range, Jx-8p and of course the TB-303 which
started the acid house revolution), paying homage to Tadao Kikumoto,
the brains behind these now legendary machines.
