Data Cult Audio 0045 – Hataken

About:

Hataken has been an electronic music producer, performer since the mid 90’s. His musical style employs ambient chilled out grooves using synthesizers to span multiple genres that create a unique style and psychedelic feeling. Hataken has performed many festivals including Boom 2012 (7 hours live show with analog vintage rigs), Ozora festival, Sonica, Sound Wave, SXSW and more. Hataken released his solo album “A Prana Planet” on Matsuri Digital Chill in Nov. 2017

Shifting from vintage analogue synth performances to modular synthesizers, Hataken has become an icon in the Japanese modular scene. In 2013 he organized the Tokyo Festival of Modular; a yearly event that showcases international modular synthesizer technology and artist performances. His goal is to foster the next generation of modular synthesizer music.

Hataken has taken part in many collaborative projects. Wåveshåper was a project with Greg Hunter which produced an album and series of live performances in Europe. He is an organizer of the alternative culture underground platform ZEN ZEN. Hataken performed and recorded with renowned guitarist Sugizo twice, and will be featured on Sugizo’s upcoming album and remix in 2018.

Data Cult Audio 0043 – DivKid

About:
DivKid is a composer, producer, sound designer and audio engineer come YouTube demonstrator. DivKid started as a composer and producer of electronic music before running into mastering for various labels and working with sound design projects for audio software and sample packs. Developing out of the initial “in the box” workflow led DivKid to work with modern desktop synths, guitar pedals and rack gear before moving through vintage keyboard synths and finally onto modular synths. Modular synths made their way into various sound design projects and composition work before an clear gap in the modular was presented that needed filling. That gap was demonstration and education around modular synths products and companies which led to the first DivKid videos on YouTube demoing euro rack modular gear. This grew and is now the main output for the “DivKid Project” demonstrating modules for the amazing community of users, designers and makers that make working with this equipment so inspirational.

PERSONAL NOTE:
Hello everyone, this is DivKid (Ben) and this is a mix of tracks in various stages of development all exploring my musical headspace of late which is textural exploration and merging performative modular work with randomly generating patches. The pieces you’ll hear cross two albums I’m working on as well as single tracks and odd “moments” I’ve captured. None of the tracks here will released or presenting in another form for some time. So enjoy the mix and the journey through my little sonic adventure.
