Releases music that demands your attention.



Summer has arrived and with it our first club release in ages, a high energy burner by KΣITO from Tokyo, Japan. We are more than excited to welcome this talented MPC finger drummer Keito Suzuki to fiery post-lockdown dance floors. He draws inspiration from the South African Gqom and percussive music, and in his own stately way he merges big room intensity with an experimental explosion of weirdness. Expect bare bones techno, full of earworm hooks. Tolouse Low Trax and Kӣr complement this record with a bunch of psychedelic remixes, creating a great balanced journey.

Dutch imprint Knekelhuis let in some sunshine with their first club-ready release in quite some time, landing in Tokyo, Japan to on-board quickest-MPC-finger-drummer-in-the-east Keito Suzuki aka KΣITO. Pulling off a massive South African Gqom vibe with manic percussion and consumer electronic timbres, there’s a very distinct vintage rave weirdness to Suzuki’s approach, melding crisp-dried snares with frantic builds and synth string leads.


Tokyo-based Keito Suzuki, who records as KΣITO and blends elements of gqom and other percussion-heavy African musical influences into his dancefloor-friendly sound, presents a high-energy release ‘Magnet’ via Knekelhuis. Comes with multiple remixes courtesy of Tolouse Low Trax and Kӣr.
