IKIZ 4/4 (Chill Set)

IKIZ 4/4 solo project is a razor sharp minimalistic landscape of organic electronic head bopping, booty shaking stew of hypnotizing hybrid music where deep house meets techno and drum'n bass meets creamy funkness. As one of the most hired drummers in Europe there's no doubt that every released track with Ikiz has interesting rythmical flavors and as a live act this is a must for a club with a dancefloor. If you haven't heard electro music with organic drums then here it is! Check out Ikiz with the 4 solo tracks released on Spotify, iTunes etc...
