SHIKIMOL Townsville ~ North Queensland ~ Insonitus Records / ModGoblin Records
Upcoming Gigs: 21/07/17 - Collaborations Festival 25/08/17 - Psylanguage
Shikimol is from the sunny city of Townsville NQ. He heard and connected with the music of Richie Hawtin, Drop Bass Network and Communique Records-pioneer of minimal acid and techno. Their dynamic and challenging aesthetic had an impact. Shortly after Shikimol became determined to make his own music and started collecting gear and records. For the past 10 years, Shikimol has played a wide range of genres to find the right sound and challenge he deserves. As a result his idiosyncratic sound lies somewhere between progressive psy and full on, a precarious balancing act that manages to infuse stripped down, finked up psy with a distinct sense of purpose. Artist like Sensient, Neelix, Autonomech, Ital, Krumelur, Merkaba and the list goes on.
Having experienced the festival scene and the great atmosphere it holds compared to a club, it is time for a broader experience. Shikimol has decided it is time to take his sound to the next level, part of the level jump has included Shikimol in starting his own production career. Having experienced Rainbow 2011 has pushed him to create his own unique sound and wanting to take his productions to the highest level. One of the most outstanding acts from North Queensland, Shikimol has the skill to impress not only the foot stomping, beat hungry crowd but also the other performers with his unpredictable mixing style.
The idea is function and entertainment as well as experimentation and emotion. Looking into the future, Shikimol is heading in a direction that will see him move the emotions and feet of party goers alike from festivals all over with his unique style of play.
