Following the much-lauded debut single ‘Dansu’, a hymn to dancing the night away that gained support from Soulwax, Bill Brewster and dEUS front man Tom Barman, Belgian-Japanese artist Aili joins forces again with one of Belgium’s most exciting new electronica acts Transistorcake for the release of 'Pari Pari'.
Built around a squelchy bass line, ‘Pari Pari’ ups the tempo and the funk, Aili’s vocals perfectly blending in with the ethereal synths to create an other-worldly vibe. Curious minds should know the track takes its title from Aili’s dad’s name for tonkatsu, a kind of Japanese schnitzel, that crackle (Japanese - Pari) as you eat them, there you go you’ve learned something new today.
Gleefully eclectic and joyful in nature, ‘Pari Pari’ is a perfect introduction to Aili and her musical world, a playful place where anything goes. With the pair currently working together on a new live show it’s to be hoped it won’t be too long before we can all dance together again.
“I left Tokyo for Belgium when I was 7 years old and in many ways my Japanese stayed at that level. When I sing in Japanese it puts me into this naive, almost childlike mindset that allows me to express what I feel right away. You don’t need to understand the words just the feeling that they convey.” Aili
Astonishing set of tracks. Really high quality throughout. That Moderna and Theus Mago track is on repeat…. Made a mix of my favourites: https://www.mixcloud.com/pearse-ohalloran/freak-a-holic-the-new-wave-acid-punx-compilation-mix/ pjcakes79
