biography

For their debut EP, ‘Dansu’ Belgian-Japanese artist Aili Maruyama and ‘Transistorcake’ Orson joined forces. The pair worked through lockdown to produce a wonderfully fresh sounding music project. Effortlessly bringing together elements of Kosmiche Musik, Acid House, Electronica, Disco & Leftfield Pop, it’s as easy on the ears as it is hard to categorise.

“I left Tokyo for Belgium when I was 7 years old and in many ways my Japanese stayed at that level. When I sing in Japanese it put me into this naive, almost childlike mindset that allows me to express what I feel right away. You don’t need to understand the words just the feeling that they convey.” Aili Maruyama

Gleefully eclectic and joyful in nature, a perfect introduction to the duo Aili and their musical world, a playful place where anything goes.
