The Analog Room's OutIn series returns in 2018 with psychedelic folktronica duo Semut Semut who will be playing their colourful live set in-store. They have also invited ambient/techno producer KIRI (one half of EBM duo Dodgy South) to dj an ambient transcendental techno set for us. Come by for great live music, drinks, excellent vinyl offerings and great company!
About Semut Semut:
Semut Semut (Malay for "Ants Ants") is a psychedelic folk electronica duo comprising of Fahruddin Hamid (guitar, electronics) and Joanne Cheah (synthesizer, vocals), members of the tropical pop band Specific Islander. They combine hypnotic rhythms with cathartic vocal repetitions to create uplifting electronic music. Using improvisation and free jamming in place of rigid songwriting, the music takes on a life of its own to pull listeners into a trance-state.
KIRI is the electronic outlet for the solo work of Jonathan Chua. His sound is a mix of fleeting sounds and recurring noises which aims to bring the listener on a transcendental journey.
