Kamikaze Space Programme aka Chris Jarman is a true sonic renegade and a genuine musical experimenter.
Somewhere in between a classic Musique Concrète and modern electronic approach, KSP’s music is made up of a myriad of samples, found sounds and white noise from real world situations. This gives his material a very real texture and aesthetic that links it to the here and now, the everyday, leading you to a very real a lucid experience. The sound of an old truck, the hiss of a kettle or the clunking of a door are all fair game for KSP, who then takes his strange sound sources and weaves them into infectious sonic tapestries and intricate rhythms.
It all started for Chris in the mid 90’s when he worked as an accomplished session musician. He first dipped his toe into the electronic world as a drum & bass producer at the turn of the century and was quickly signed to revered label Renegade Hardware and soon began playing around the world. Never one to sit still, Chris wanted to foment an even more original sound and thus the Kamikaze Space Programme project was born.
It’s a project with its own sonic identity that’s been snapped up by the press and public alike with his music being released on legendary labels such as Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver, Killekill, Tresor and TRUST. He’s also been commissioned to remix many other amazing artists including Planetary Assault Systems, Ingen, Emika2, He/aT and The Exaltics, always adding his own idiosyncratic take on things.
This in turn has led to a relentless schedule of playing live across the globe in the Worlds best clubs and festivals including Berghain, Don’t & Krake.
This is one artist that will dive bomb your outer & inner soul to get you fully on board his shuttle into sonic exploration.
