PlaylistJapanese experimental synth duo formed in 2012 by Tommi Tokyo (synthesizers, drum machines and vocals) and Sayaka Botanic (violin, sampler and cassette tapes). Their early shows came as a shock to most spectators, non-stop waves of avant-garde noise, intensely emotional poetry reading and performance arts such as half nude live-painting.
Their approach to djing is similar to how they make music, creating and mixing completely different sounds and juxtaposing Tommi and Sayaka's contrasting tastes. Their unique palette of sounds combines industrial/minimal synth/rhythmic noise with contemporary classical music and soundtracks from 60-80's films. Their experimental DJ-set at Atonal Berlin '16 and mixtape for Brvtalist.
