Lafidki Short Info

LAFIDKI is a london based sound/visual artist, and founder of Chinabot, a label and platform created to change the dialogue surrounding Asian music.Theses last tracks were released via Orange Milk records (Foodman, Kate NV, Ashley Paul..).He later founded Chinabot, an asian diasporic experience.

LAFIDKI is a sound artist and conceptual collagist who performs around the world. His music is an confluence of ideas, synthesising multiple underrepresented histories, geographies, musical genres and cultural signifiers into compelling, colourful sonic material that packs contemporaneous dancefloor weight.

Chinabot is his first album and a major step for the artist, with an emphasis on sparse arrangements of digital electronics. Following 1 year of touring Asia, LAFIDKI began to incorporate influences from the evolving beat scene in the east to his organic sounds of acoustic instrumentation to create a blend of tonal and rhythmical minimalism.Chinabot is a concept album who features guest appearances from Asia.

LAFIDKI played international festivals VIA 2012 (Pittsburgh), Nuit blanche - French Institute 2016 (Kyoto/Japan) ,Siam Museum (Bangkok/Thailand), Sonic Moon (Hanoi/Vietnam), Electrona (Hobart/Tasmania), represented Cambodia at Tallinn Music Week..

'Absynthax is a delightful, upbeat and poppy strain of maximalism that’s very hard to resist..' Tayyab Amin (Pitchfork/Fact)

“like in a hysterical flickering halfbroken schizophrenic one armed bandit in the middle of a rebuilt las vegas somewhere in a opium club in China”

"...the brightest synth patterns and the biggest beats, doing some sort of amplified tropical rhythm along with starry, crystalline synths. Basically, it sounds like staring up at the stars and zoning out while dancing for a few minutes..." Foxy digitalis
