The Auckland producer weaves together glittering downtempo beats, Japanese dub and vogue-infused ‘90s NY house for the Alumni Mix.
Auckland-based vocalist and producer k2k specializes in alternate realities, from luminous downtempo collages inspired by the West Coast beat scene, to spectral pop-house with fried edges. A web developer and novice hacker, she mines digital culture for source material, transfiguring samples from hip-hop and new-school R&B. When she’s not cut off from the world on a coding binge or designing for new underground art and culture magazine Midwaste, catch her mixing a selection of dance classics and dusty house cuts. After attending RBMA in 2015, she released her 2016 cassette, MA.C001, and her 2017 debut EP proper, Sugar, both on New Zealand label MARGINS.
