Kohei has been making / releasing music since 1997 and has
recorded for such iconic labels as Mille Plateaux, Important,
Pan & Diagonal. His latest recordings explore intricate drum
programming, lush melodies & sparkling arrangements.
Touchstones include the legendary Clicks & Cuts compilations
from the 1990's as well as Aphex Twin & Autechre. RA called
his music "bombastic techno funk..unpredictable but rarely
Exit Entrance is a collection of new songs that snap and flicker
unlike anything Kohei has done in the past. There is a clarity and
beauty to these tracks that bursts out of the speakers in a three
dimensional way, matching the 3D glasses that the artist wears
during all his live performances. The elegant arrangements and
crisp drum breaks match the concise song titles - Kohei foregoes
the typical impenetrable track names made up of numbers and
shorthand, and opts for a more direct emotional sincerity through
the sonic themes of the record.
