Kamikaze Space Programme

Kamikaze Space Programme

Real Name:
Christopher Jarman
Kamikaze Space Programme is a true sonic renegade, a genuine musical experimenter. Somewhere between a classic Musique Concrète and modern electronic approach, KSP’s music is made up of myriad samples and found sounds from real world situations, it lends the stuff a very real texture and aesthetic that links it to the here and now, the everyday, in a very real way. The sound of an old truck, the hiss of a kettle or the clunking of a door are all fair game for KSP, who then takes his strange sound sources and weaves them into infectious sonic tapestries and intricate rhythms.

It all started for Chris Jarman in the mid-90s when he worked as an accomplished session musician. He first dipped his toe into the electronic world as a D&B producer at the turn of the century and was quickly signed to revered label Renegade Hardware and soon began playing around the world. Never one to sit still, Jarman wanted to foment an even more original sound and thus the Kamikaze Space Programme project was born.

It’s a project with its own sonic identity that has been snapped up by the press and public alike, with many festival appearances taking him across the globe and much music being released on labels such as Luke Slater's legendary Mote Evolver, Mindcut, Bob Bhrama’s West Norwood Cassette Library, TRUST & Mindcut and has been commissioned to remix artists such as Planetary Assault Systems, Emika, He/aT, Paul Mac and The Exaltics, always adding his own idiosyncratic take on things.
