Jikooha is Japanese word, which means “the wave of time and space”.
Tokyo-based trance outfit Jikooha comprises of two Japanese, Jun and Shimodi, who played in a punk and new wave influenced alternative rock band in early ’90s. In 1996, they found the sound of Goa Trance that led them to form Jikooha in 1997 and started to produce their own trance tracks.
While remained committed to their unique mixture of goa trance and punk rock influence, Jikooha’s eclectic and unique sound shows their love of all music. They use many analog gears like Arp Odyssey, Roland Juno-106, TB-303, SH-101, Korg MS-20, etc. and sometimes they are experimental when making their unique goa tunes; the process they believe is their search for spiritual journey.
Jikooha has been playing their gigs at many parties from 1999 and has released many tracks for various compilations with much good feedbacks. In 2003 they released the 1st album “New Breed” on Tod Aquarium Records in Japan, later then the 2nd album “Shamanarchy” on Panorama Records in 2006. Two years later, their tracks were getting more melodic and acidic, the 3rd album “Revolution Spaceship” was released on Panorama Records again. They also released the 4th album “Sirius Rising” in 2012.
And these days they have been working on new tracks for their forthcoming album.
