Belladonna 1/16/2013 12-inch, A Library
NHK’ Koyen is Kouhei Matsunaga an electronic musician and draughtsman who resides in both Osaka and Berlin. He spent his formative years in Osaka studying architecture and listening to techno and rap. Although his focus seems to be on a hybrid of those two genres, he has also collaborated with more experimental artists like Asmus Tietchens , Conrad Schnitzler, Lesser, Mika Vainio and Merzbow. This ranges from super beat-y and bleepy to glitchy and gritty. Theres some good bass, dubbiness and echo that make this more than your average “techno” release.
