REE.K

In terms of artistry, this lady knows no borders and is, in a positive sense un-catogorizable. When DJ’ing or composing she treads her own terrain.

She is Queen of her own un-touched planet styled from eclectic musical elements that she instinctively feels she can fuse into her own super-dimension. An astoundingly beautiful electronic patchwork quilt of sound is Ree K.

Chronologically, her resume reads… music career begins in ’84, active as a DJ from ’92, her original party organization [Space Gathering] was set up in ’97 and an electronic music band [Kinocosmo] formed in ’98.

She released her own DJ mix CD [Cubism] in 2001 and started her own label in 2002 called [Hypnodisk].

and released two mix CD [Alpha] and [Omega] in 2006.

Ree K will never stop pushing herself further and deeper into the many dimensions of music.

REE.K although one of the most famous female DJ in Japan is also respected worldwide for her unique and original sound sets!
As a teenager she began her musical career as a guitarist in a hardcore punk band. So her music even today sometimes has a hardcore edge with a female touch while remaining fun and danceable. In the early 80s she discovered the bouncing track style of recording which drove her deeply into the world of DJ production. She then began to create her own unique club music in the early 90s as a techno and body industrial DJ. In 1992 she discovered techno/trance and since then has been performing this style in her own unique way.
She then joined DJ Tsuyoshi’s label Matsuri Productions as resident DJ. Ree.K has a wide influence of music and styles and has been collecting a diverse and rare variety of music from around the world which she continuously blends into her own unique dance beat.
As a creator she has released her own tracks on the world wide label Psy-Harmonics (Australia), KREMBO (Isreal), Matsuri (Japan), Qube (UK), and Boom Records (Holland).
In 2002 she started her own label with husband Masa called Hypnodisk. This label is sure to become a forefront of her own musical diversification as well as a that of other artists.
Recently as a cofounder of her own band Kinocosmo with Masa she is in charge of musical production, programming, and spacey voice. This band has allowed her to enjoy playing live once again as she used to in her early days and is sure to become a phenomenon on the rock/electronica live stage.
Along with her great music talent she was originally a VJ(with Equinox and TTT Records), now she is also a professional illustrator and graphic designer since the late 80s and thoroughly enjoys creating her own party flyers, CD covers, and eye catching graphics.
Ree.K seems to express diverse musical tastes through her so-called trance DJ sets and music making. Since trance is an element that could possibly exist in any musical genre Ree.K can successfully express her own kind of trance through many different musical styles. Through whichever musical style she plays she has a loyal following of people who appreciate and understand good quality dance music.
Ree.K is a natural at concocting her own style of trance from a variety of music. She combines her vast musical knowledge and excellent mixing technique to always gets the dance floor moving and grooving to a sound that is simply GENIUS!

 

REE.K (text by Toshiya Ueno)

1964: ある記念碑的なメディア論でラジオやレコードが「部族の太鼓」の比喩で語られ、electric tribalismが提唱される。
1968: パリの街路に「想像力を武器にせよ」という落書きがあふれる。

19xx: どこかの高次元宇宙から霊的波動と情報子が地球に転送され、一人の女性のかたちになる。
1992: Ree.Kと呼ばれるエレクトロニック・シャーマンがDJをはじめる。
1997: メディアの語源mediumに「広場/集まりの空間」と「霊媒」の二つの意味が刻まれていることを人々が忘れないようにSpace Gatheringが起動する。
20xx: Ree.K、ビートの波動、音楽のパルスだけでなく、身体の波動、大地の気、空間の磁場をダウジングし、これらと戯れ、操り、調整する実験を開始。
2012: 何か特定の音楽のジャンル(genre)には属さずに、あらゆる波動とビートがいろいろな表現を総称する(generic)触媒のかたちを求めて、地球時間で二〇年がたった。様々な音楽のスタイルの境界を交差、混ぜ合わせるだけじゃない、内容も表現も、精神も物質もたえまなく横断しつづける、それがRee.Kの進む道だ。

Ree.K、潔く優雅に、しなやかに鋭く、錯乱と慈しみの律動を、今日もこの世界、宇宙に叩き込め。
