Ki is the Japanese word for tree
"And like a tree the so titled label struck it’s roots deep into the soil of electronic Music"
Since 2009 Ki build up a solid stem of international artists that grew along the way since the Label’s start. Ki Releases are diverse in sound and genre, but related in quality. It’s not Ki’s thing to stick to one direction.
Most of the Label's musicians are somewhat involved in many disciplines of art. From the smallest detail in production, to the whole package - each Release is a piece of art throughout. And because fine art looks best on a proper sized canvas of 12“, Ki releases it’s music primarily on Vinyl. To look at, feel, listen to and love.
As ideologists, Aanbreken have set about constructing a concept EP, with a defined manifesto guiding their sound. The music explores the principles, character and meaning of “Action”. As they state themselves, “every system is a chain of actions… Every order of actions is a ritual. Whether it’s originated naturally or created by man”.
The sound was intended “to convey the mood and dynamics of the ritual”, as a boundary between point A and point B, a cross-line that divides past and future. With that boundary representing the present.
