NIN KUJI - get the free stuff in better quality | nin kuji at bandcamp

dear friends,

some of you know i'm not the best friend of the so called social (marketing) media. thats bad for seeding my stuff, yes... bad for getting all the fresh or boring news from the people out there... but these social media conversations make me sick, steal my lifetime. sorry to the world... nin kuji releases always have been some kind of anti social media. hope you understand that. remember the roots and the meaning of industrial when monte cazazza (yeah!) and the industrial records crew started that way of anti-art more than 30 years ago: we are an ugly mirror for the ugly aspects of mankind.

okay, once again i joined some kind of a bandcommunity now: bandcamp. they offer high-res downloads, so this is a great way to share some free nin kuji songs (on lastfm you only get low-res downloads...).

two free ep-releases from 2006 are available at

i will upload more free songs during the next months, so stay tuned.

the official releases are available at
or at the wonderful

i hope you´ll enjoy all the fine stuff from these two labels – great people, great music!
or come to the maschinenfest 2012 to see nin kuji, 100blumen and hydrone live on stage.

meanwhile i´ll hide at castle kuji…
see you at the holy mfest

read the official info by ant-zen here:

the one man project nin kuji was started at the end of 2001, founded to establish a striking and powerful instrument for emotional transfer via the medium of sound. after various demo cd-rs and tapes, the project gained the attention of djs in the u.s., japan and germany with the self-released album 'no way out' in 2004. since 2005 nin kuji started co-operating with german d.i.y. label le petit machiniste where the ep 'medicine man' was released. and since then his' musical emphasis shifted from noise, power electronics and dark electro to rhythm'n'noise and experimental electronica. he considers his project as an act that prefers an approach of honest interpretation of feelings in place of technical skills. making music means keeping grounded and giving retreat, hence there is no segregation between the private person and the artist.

'sayonara' clearly demonstrates nin kuji's knowledge in how to control the buttons of heavy pounding machinery. a crossover between technoid aphex twin-based ambient-industrial, heavily distorted electro noise and the tribal approach displayed by the likes of muslimgauze and this morn' omina. the well thought out tracklist order is held together by gapless, more quiet sequences and was intended to generate a continuous flow between the rhythmic parts which operate in ultra-repetitive spheres based on mid-tempo rhythm textures and heavy subtle bass-drones. tracks like 'daichi no musuko', 'tamashii' and 'theatre [stages]' should be considered as essential for topical industrial dancefloors. an ingenious combination of multiple layers, hypnotic patterns and sophisticated beats.

nearly eight years were needful for this release to mature. based on concepts going back to 2002 combined with notions from various live appearances, this album marks an essence of what nin kuji stands for from the beginning until now - a chapter's end, maybe even a conclusion before breaking new ground. an album of ageless, self supported personality - sayonara, medicine man!

still available: nin kuji - medicine man (ep) at le petit machiniste

...and for those who don´t know: there are two experimental eps from 2006 to download for free at
the very dark and noisy "propagierte haesslichkeit" and the electro pop/power electronics fusion "some of these moments".
grab it and enjoy some strange songs from nin kuji...
