kamikuma (natalia kamia), one my fav soundclouders, hails from Gothenburg, Sweden. “anything can be translated” says her profile, but let the mystery be for while and just absorb her work. she creates space within and around her sounds, which is a high calling, and results often in tracks that are as exhilarating as they can be challenging. she surprised me with remixes using my field recording of the bloomingdale’s flagship store on 59th street and lexington avenue in manhattan. the original field recording follows her notes below.

KAMIKUMA’S NOTES ON WINDOWSHOPPER:
Contemplating the machinery at a distance with a fascination of a voyeur.
I made two tracks – the first one is a hiphoplike cut and paste.This one is employing the natural groove of Zedkah’s track, with a mechanic beat at a low volume and panned away. It is more like a shopping reverie.
