Bali-based Kasimyn and Ican Harem filter the traditional Indonesian sounds of their neighbourhood through the unlimited kaleidoscopic possibilities of the internet era, creating rapid-fire frenetic tracks blending happy hardcore, Chicago footwork, and Balinese gamelan genre. Chaotic, rainbow-coloured rhythms and mind-bending percussive gymnastics ensue.
Hyper-charged duo Kasimyn and Ican Harem, who merge traditional Indonesian folk music with vigorous footwork, grindcore and gabber influences to create a frantic, exuberant diasporic sound.
Trance, gabber, grindcore, noise, happy hardcore
