We started making music as the bass and synthesizer duo kim ki o in the summer of 2006. Our sound is based on playing every instrument live. We structure our songs with the hazy vocals, usually sung in Turkish on top of the monotonous beats we get out of a hip-hop style drum machine. We also use a cassette player occasionally to get our pre-recorded samples on tapes. We have played various shows around Turkey, Europe and UK. We have joined Swedish musician Jens Lekman on his European tour in 2008, did two Scandinavian Tours with Thulebasen and Eagle Boston in 2009. We have self-released two hand-made CD-Rs in 2007 and 2008 and our new album “Dans” was released as limited edition vinyl by the independent Dutch label Enfant Terrible in August 2010. (www.enfant-terrible.nl) In early 2011 we have toured Germany as the support act of the highly influential The Radio Dept. Then in April/May 2011 we did a 3 week tour of Europe and UK supporting the awesome Moon Duo.
