KITCHEN. LABEL is thrilled to announce its 15th-anniversary show at Shibuya WWW in Tokyo, Japan, scheduled for November 15, 2023. This event will bring together the label’s artists, presenting their distinct musical aesthetic.
The event’s headline act features Hiroshima-based producer Meitei, who will be performing compositions from his acclaimed Kofū album series, including the highly anticipated Kofū III, set to be released in Mid-November.
ASPIDISTRAFLY will deliver a rare ensemble live set, accompanied by Kyo Ichinose on piano, Seigen Tokuzawa with a string quartet and Yukawa Shione on classical guitar. Audiences can anticipate the live premiere of their latest album, Altar of Dreams, along with cherished classics from A Little Fable.
The event will also showcase the highly anticipated Japan live debut of Singaporean composer and producer Kin Leonn, who will present the live premiere of his upcoming new album, mirror in the gleam, with live visuals by Raphael Ong of Sobs. Furthermore, the show will feature an ambient set by Hiroshi Ebina, the newest addition to the KITCHEN. LABEL roster.
Ricks Ang, the founder of KITCHEN. LABEL, expressed his thoughts for the upcoming event, stating, “We are excited to mark our 15th anniversary together with our Japanese listeners who have been supporting the label and our artists through these years.「絵夢」is more than just a title; it emerged after months of seeking the perfect embodiment of our artists’ shared world. The wordplay of “ukiyo-e” (浮世絵) and “dreams” (夢) encapsulates our mission to paint a vivid dreamscape through sound. This event will showcase our label’s past, present and future.”
Tickets are now through eplus and zaiko and will be sold at the door on the event day.
