Djs 10 Sui and Apache 61 both played some extreme drum and bass sounds, Apache 61 in particular deconstructing the form so much that the beginning of her set slipped into pure searing, tearing audio art territory. (DJ Magazine)
onto the scene sometime in 1996, Apache 61 is the mashed
up mayhem produced by Mieko Shimizu, a Japanese ex-pat living in Brixton,
South London. Beautifully out of hand, its unashamedly driven
by its rhythmic core layers and layers of cross woven breaks,
and shattered percussion, battling shards of sub bass. Through this
brutal backdrop she manages to interleave magical, stateless melodies,
rich harmonics and ambience drawing from the fringes of the avant-garde.
She is currently finishing a new album, and an EP [china_syntax] which will be released in October 2002 on No Immortal Records.
