    "Slick low end production with an evocative nod to the synth experimentations of the 80s. Rubbery slappy funky hooky bass lines pop up in unsuspecting places. Syncopated jazzy percussion rhythms underscore and dance with the straight ahead techno drums, hinting at melodies whispering in the distance. Occasional nods to electro and idm you can’t quite make out in the distance. "
    -Jeffrey Paradise (Poolside)

      “Solid, satisfying, and full of surprises. Looking forward to this full length album”

        "The kind of record the creator himself would subconsciously or even subliminally push on patrons at SF's Open Mind Music in its sublime heyday - dubby, glacial, effervescent, techno flirts... but never without that almighty soul. 5/5* - Dave Aju (Circus Company / Elbow Grease)

          Trip Show’s album The Far East Is The Near West And The Wild West Is The Near East was born of “1984 Waikiki teen clubs to DJing the San Francisco barscapes, techno happy hours and afterhours”. The Honolulu-based producer (AKA John Keaka Friend) has 25 years of electronic music creation under his belt via remixes and releases through Cytrax, Losonofono Records, Select Cuts, Nude Photo Music, BSI, and eponymous label Trip Show. In the words of the artist, “I tried to make the kind of record that wouldn't leave my bag. Bonus beats and melodies, tracky and dubby post-house. Positive, but not for the weekend warrior. Influenced by Pépé Bradock, the Easy Street label and bleep techno.
