Various Artists Kiki: Boogybytes Vol. 01
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: Bpitch Control
Axl Jansen's peculiar/ugly sleeve portrait of Joakim Ijäs (a.k.a. Kiki) captures the Finnish DJ mid-head-bang, his features unflatteringly frozen. Conversely, the inaugural release for Bpitch Control's new mix series thrives on movement: a sense of forward propulsion, a rushiness. Kiki's splicing of tracks from the likes of Fairmont, Ellen Allien, Troy Pierce, and Anja Schneider seems close to unstoppable-when the pace plummets close to the dextrous set's conclusion, it feels like a minor act of sabotage.
