We have grown accustomed to the predictability of DJ’s and DJ sets. Often then, it’s refreshing to go back to basics. Analog Kitchen is doing exactly that. His live setup is based around live boxes like drumcomputers, sequencers and samplers. If you are in the know, then this rudimentary approach leaves little to the imagination.
Analog Kitchen is exactly what the name entails… Tweaking knobs and fiddling frequencies, cooking it all together so that a different tention builds. Carefully selecting his drums and sequences, whilst adding sounds effects, will set a musical palette where anyone can sample their taste.
We’re in a time where the need for authenticity seems move the early adopters and it’s fresh to cross pollinate the then with the now. Analog Kitchen’s gear setup is always evolving depending on the length of his performance, but the basics will be an MPC, a Moog Minitaur bass line droid, an Electron Octatrack that provides sequences and sounds and various guitar pedals adding effects.
Think Robert Hood, Octave One, Kink, Depeche Mode and The Normal all thrown together in a big pot, heated and stirred and you’ll understand where this is headed. Come, sit down and taste some Musical Soul Food at The Analog Kitchen. Bring your appetite because dinner is served!
