Legendary samurai of techno, Ken Ishii debuts on Different Is Different Records with ‘Twitched’.
Already putting out tracks on the cult label R&S since 94, Kens sound soon broke out of the confines of a specialist audience and took the world by storm. Highlights such as composing the official theme for Nagano’s 1998 Winter Olympics and winning the MTV’s Dance Music Video Of The Year in the UK with ‘Extra’, a music video animated and directed by Akira’s Koji Morimoto, are only two examples of his notorious career.
Coincidentally both remixes on this release are from the United States, specifically from the city of Chicago. Orlando Solis aka Submerge, makes his debut on Different Is Different Records with an acid-infused version of ‘Twitched’ served in a cup of darkness. Maria Goetz and her life partner Angel Alanis under the new moniker ‘Owslah & Goetz’ are also debuting with a massive remix, keeping the metallic vibe found on the original while adding a twisted flip.
People certainly can’t say they know techno if they don’t know who Ken Ishii is. So starting from this fact, we can call this release one of our most honorific to date.
