For our inaugural Calculus Mix, we introduce you to Vancouver based artist Richard Duggan as KAFKA.
Richard has been writing and producing under various aliases since the early 90s, with KAFKA taking shape in late 2013.
Since then, he has become a key player in the Vancouver underground techno community. Both his live and DJ sets are focused on the larger conceptual journey, often slow to draw you in, offering listeners an expansive soundtrack that explores the darker depths of techno and experimental electronic music.
In addition to many headlining spots in Vancouver, Calgary, and Seattle - KAFKA was also a showcase artist at the 2015 DAT Festival in Missoula, Montana, as well as British Columbia's own Bass Coast Festival. He has performed opening sets for prominent techno and experimental electronic artists including Subjected, Blind Observatory, Regis, Silent Servant, Kangding Ray, Erika, Deepchild, and Vancouver’s own The Automatic Message.
KAFKA has released records on Berlin's Reclaim Your City Label, Rome's Concrete Records, Vancouver's own SubSpec Records, as well as his own label - Body Politic Recordings.
