about

The new twelve track record from Taketi Uloomu see’s a redirection from New York based composer Kyo Hiraki. Recorded in London and New York during 2013 the focus is far more on pop-electronica instrumentals without forfeiting the brooding, ambient and experimental qualities from the previous release on Trestle.

Programmed beats and metronomic ticks carry the up-tempo backing for lush synth washes and fingered melodic lines to weave among effects. The results are often detailed and epic bringing a determined intensity to many of the tracks. As with previous works the pieces have a filmic quality that reflect Taketi Uloomu's obsession with science fiction, mystery and horror films and the instrumental works of those musicians who compose the atmospheric accompaniment for visuals. A dark quality surrounds the complex compositions that progressively layer with intricacy amidst vast fields of ambient reverb and scenic field recordings.

The collaging of electronic sounds both retro and contemporary, analogue alongside digital, into atmospheric sound worlds takes notable influence from soundtrack composition, krautrock, electro and hip hop production. It's these mixtures of era and sounds that perhaps bring to mind artists as diverse as Harmonia, The Knife and Boards of Canada.
