SHIKOBA, real name Adem Zor, creative mind behind the interstellar label Planet Almanac, varies in his DJ sets in the hypnotic tension field between Krautrock, Experimental and Techno. Juggling with the sound aesthetics appeals to him the most. Dance Music, which transfers the club night’s escapism to a more artistic than functional level.
Loops, polyrhythms and sound aesthetics are the three key words with which his live sets can be described. Natural sounds combined with digital synthesis, using the listener as a medium to close the gap between these two.
Through the use of polyrhythmics in combination with the use of the Euclidean algorithm, he tries to recreate, recombine and/or rerhythmize culturally manifested rhythms in order to create an exchange between cultures, to break listening habits and to reach the body differently.
He himself understands his live sets as experienceable ideas, which are presented and carried forward by the experiencer and be thought even further.

Their performance becomes a soothing healing practice for the mental trauma our technocratic societies have left us with.
