Ken Ishii – Malfunction​ ​Manipulation(incl.(Funk D'Void and Greencross remix)

RELEASE DATE:31.01.2018
After ​’Twitched’​ ​and​ ​four​ ​remix​ ​releases​ ​later,​ ​Ken​ ​Ishii reveals his latest EP ​’Malfunction​ ​Manipulation’. The renowned Japanese DJ received international acclaim early on in his career, producing the official theme song of the 1998 winter Olympics in Nagano and making the cover of Newsweek two years later as a symbol of modern Japanese culture. Since then, Ken Ishii has toured internationally playing in festivals such as Monegros, WIRE, and earlier this year in Tomorrowland. A true international artist, Ken teams up with London-based Funk D’Void and Venezuelan-born Greencross for this new release of chill, glitchy techno.
In the words of Ishii himself, “interesting​ ​musical​ ​pieces​ ​derive​ ​from​ ​malfunctions​ ​of machines​ ​or​ ​musician’s​ ​irregular​ ​deeds.​ ​It’s​ ​usually​ ​not controllable,​ ​but​ ​if​ ​you​ ​can​ ​control​ ​it​ ​you​ ​would​ ​be​ ​able to​ ​rule​ ​this​ ​music​ ​world.” Ken demonstrates his mastery over his instruments in “Malfunction Manipulation,” a slow-building track buzzing with electricity. The sounds edge towards the breaking point before they are pulled back at the last second into the discipline of the tight beat. Funk D’Void follows up with his remix of the track which highlights the ambient and melodic undertones of the original. Finally, Greencross gives the track a harder edge with a hint of 8-bit nostalgia in his version.
A​ ​remix​ ​release​ ​is​ ​already​ ​in​ ​the​ ​works,​ ​set​ ​to​ ​hit​ ​the stores​ ​in​ ​summer​ ​2018.
