Ki is the Japanese word for tree
"And like a tree the so titled label struck it’s roots deep into the soil of electronic Music"
Since 2009 Ki build up a solid stem of international artists that grew along the way since the Label’s start. Ki Releases are diverse in sound and genre, but related in quality. It’s not Ki’s thing to stick to one direction.
Most of the Label's musicians are somewhat involved in many disciplines of art. From the smallest detail in production, to the whole package - each Release is a piece of art throughout. And because fine art looks best on a proper sized canvas of 12“, Ki releases it’s music primarily on Vinyl. To look at, feel, listen to and love.
The Japanese producer Daisuke Tanabe is back on Ki for a full 15-track LP that will be released on a double 10” Vinyl. Tanabe was initially one of the first to contribute his music to the German imprint with the second release in the labels catalogue back in 2009. Some time has passed since then and the former Red Bull Music Academy participant has evolved even more and cemented his unique sound scape to a recognizable trademark. With his debut album “Before I forget”, a few EP’s, many Remixes and an album in collaboration with Kidkanevil as Kidsuke, he’s now back for more on Ki. 15 tracks full of surprising twists and turns and genre defying sounds and rhythmic patterns. It was always hard to put Tanabe’s production into one genre and it’s not easier now. If you want to, you will definitely be able to put his music somewhere but you better listen closely and get lost in his incredibly deep and intelligent arrangements. It’s an album that tells the listener a story. Which story that is? It’s solely up to the you.
