Akiko Kiyama is back on LMD after kick starting the label with her acclaimed Misidia Monarchy EP. Since then her sound has matured and grown, the Flesh Got Spirit EP shows this in more ways than one. With a brooding sub low bassline & twisted intricate layers a genius vocal comes into play lifting the track only then to be placed back into the depths of the abyss. Treppen is a peak time destroyer, sucking you into a hypnotizing rhthym that builds and builds creating a feeling that something is about to happen, strange vocals that sound like lost souls haunt the track hooking you in only to spit you back out onto a roller coaster baseline. Sometimes is a harmonic cruise control roller that takes you on a trip through Akikos wonderland.
