ABSTRACT

Kangding ray's music reflects his wide musical background, and a particular way of merging beats and atmospheric soundscapes into slowly evolving compositions.
KR combines machines with « real instruments » in a subtle and rythmic suite, integrating noises, walls of distortion, massive bass lines, voices and field recordings, blending techno grooves with dark textures, always on the edge between experimental music and club culture
