WAQWAQ KINGDOM

WaqWaq Kingdom

Tribal inspired bass heavy duo featuring the killer production duo of Shigeru Ishihara aka Scotch Egg and of the band Seefeel and Kiki Hitomi of favourites King Midas Sound handling vocals. The duo are known as heavy vibe bringers, having carved themselves a reputation across Europe and beyond with bookings now confirmed in China, and growing interest in the US since announcing first new single from their forthcoming Phantom Limb Records full length ‘Essaka Hoisa’*. WaqWaq Kingdom draw on themes found in ancient Shinto mythology and the Japanese “Matsuri” festivals that honour the local gods, “Kami-sama”. WaqWaq Kingdom’s hypnotic and shamanic live performances have been described as “an intense time-warp experience that re-connect animistic roots with the future of urban neon colours”. The duo’s first 2 records, and EP and LP on Jahtari were received very well, with bookings resulting in all territories, and much adoring press from The Quietus to Resident Advisor and coverage promised in The Wire, etc. All the fun from an inspired global perspective, Shige just returned from a collaborative trip to Uganda with the Nyege Nyege residency to play shows in Nantes, and Rotterdam.
