Yikii set to release a new album on Aisha Devi’s Danse Noire
Changchun-based Chinese producer Yikii has announced a new LP for Aisha Devi’s Danse Noire imprint titled ‘Crimson Poem 深紅之詩’.
Set for release on 1st October, the album is inspired by ambient, gabber and post-club, as well as contemporary composition, avant-pop and nursery rhymes. Tension-inducing and existing ‘at the foggy threshold where dreams become nightmares’, the album is more resonant and vibrant than her other long players.
In Yikii’s own words: “It’s the closest to the colour and atmosphere of the new world I imagined, compared to the previous albums. I want to create my own world through music and drawings, which exists in a separate time and space, and if I leave, you can still feel my existence through them. From there you can experience a whole world that is alive.”
As well as being singer of duo Anemone, in her relatively short solo career Yikii has released over 20 albums and mini-albums, self-released and on labels like FunctionLab, Dark Jinja, Quantum Natives and Niphlex Recordings.
