Roebin de Freitas
Music for your mind and for your feet is really all Kemiko stands for. Trying to compromise the cerebral with the muscular. From an emotional soundscape to a hard as nails Breakbeat. Taking his influence from Industrial and Electronica, always adding chunks of funk and layers of depth (he has even been spotted doing the occasional Elektro set with breaks a go-go). In the end it’s all about Techno with a serious twist. Even though Kemiko only has been on the circuit since 2003, he already has been picked up by several promoters. Giving him the chance to play at famous events as Kozzmozz and the Fuse club, he even went abroad on several occasions.
Roebin de Freitas style could best be described as dubby, mnml, melodic and gritty. Always looking for a deep, sensual and introvert sound whilst being heavily influenced by the relationship between Detroit and Berlin. For him, institutes like the M-series, Studio 1, DBX and Juan Atkins are never forgotten. On the other hand, Roebin is sensitive towards new and upcoming artists whoms material are tools for him to carry out his message. It’s all about something old, something new, something borrowed, something moody blue.
