“After multiple projects and experiences in various groups of various genres, he launches alone in 2018 under his project OHTNA project which he decides to realize following his travels after a stop in a festival of electronic music, more specifically the Dub-techno and the Micro.”
“The Time for EP is the first EP for this young talented producer. With the label Chickyu-u Records he found a well working platform to bring out his music to the world.
With ‘Nosee’ and ‘Crewlove’ he releases his first two tracks, for which he was inspired from his crew and the big love they all had together for the music. ”
“Joe Lewandowski’s new EP Per fare l’amore at midnight was composed around midnight. This unique moment when imagination blurs reality. Chikyu-u next release captures this particular vibe with four new tracks, from dub house to downtempo jazzy, but always with a soulful and deep vibe .”
“Liam and Ben have been curating the dance music moniker 2XM since the end of 2016, and in that time have explored a myriad of influences, ranging from disco to contemporary classical, all within a house-like construct. This project showcases these range of influences in a such a way that allows the tracks to exist both independently and for each other. ‘Session Funk’ is awash with saturated Rhodes stabs, heavily textural percussion and solo lines that work together to create a dark and disparate ambience. It exhibits a quality of improvisation, but ties all of the parts together in a club-heavy context. The remainder of the E.P. traverses 2XM’s wide genre influences; ‘Don’t Wanna (Let You Go)’ an atmospheric, down-tempo ode to disco, and ‘Crazy‘ a nod to their classical upbringing.”
“Chikyu-u is back with another EP on the Unknown series ! Another diverse selection of 4 tracks from a mysterious artist you’ve already heard in our catalogue. The opening track has an old-school deep feeling with a discoïd solo that brings it to its climax. Next up, an endless high speed deep loop for the dancefloor. The third track is a powerful deep-house piece for sunsets and daydreaming. To end the EP, a piece inspired by dub techno with nice touches of house. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do !”
“We welcome Jack George’s Roma EP for Chikyu’s 24th release. Jack is a DJ from Los Angeles, currently based out of Montreal. The title track of this EP blends stuttered percussion over a warm, textured soundscape with some jazzy chords and a rolling bass line. In suit, ‘Mania’ delivers punchy drum patterns and a growling low end laden with rich dub chords and an electrifying modular ambiance. The final original in the project is a hypnotically spaced-out break, perfect for the early morning dance floor. French producer and long time friend, Luminescu, reworks this one for an energetically warbled journey that builds and evolves as it spirals into itself. A truly eclectic project, each track has its time and place.”
