"Pierlo vs Jfrank" (k001), the first EP to be released on the newborn label Kaiju ( wearekaiju.bandcamp.com ) is now available for digital download and as a ultra-limited 25 copies audiocassette edition.
Kaiju was founded in January 2014 by the roman collective behind the series of events held in Rome over the last 2 years to promote and release the guest artists playing live at the Kaiju nights. Every release will adhere to the same concept: 2 artists will confront each other with no genre limitations in a 1 vs 1 match, one track per side and one side each.
The first release stars Pierlo and Jfrank – founding fathers respectively of Upitup Records and Brainstormlab. Pierlo, with “The Voder” introduces a new flair to his typically nostalgic/futuretronic sound and goes for a much more distinct acid/techno sound with a somewhat metallic aftertaste.
Jfrank on the other side gifts us with “My House or Yours”, in which the notion and aesthetics of “house” music goes through a grinder to be stirred up and blended in beyond recognition leading us into a destructured narrative glide reminiscent of the early 2000s IDM sound of labels such as Skam, Rephlex and Warp.
