Premiere: Risa Taniguchi - This Guy [Kneaded Pains]

Born and raised in Tokyo, Risa Taniguchi is the classically trained and skilled musician turned leading techno queen, making a serious impact on the scene with her electrifying releases and DJ sets. Drawing inspiration from the underground scene of her home city, and playing clubs such as Vent, Contact and Womb, Risa is making all the right noises in all the right places.

Her second EP for Dense & Pika’s Kneaded Pains label follows up releases for Cin Cin, Second State and Odd Recordings. On the ‘This Guy’ EP, Risa deploys a trio of shadowy yet vigorous club cuts, taking in rasping acid lines, twisted vocal loops and haunting tones, each track delivered with a pace and energy that will satisfy those with a love of the real techno sound.

This Guy’ EP by Risa Taniguchi is released on Kneaded Pains from 10th June 2022.
