Influences: Jigga – Lillllill

The Japanese experimental artist shows us some of the records that influenced his latest release.

Jigga is a young Japanese multi-instrumentalist (自我 meaning Ego/Myself in Japanese). The artist’s second ever release titled Lillllill is his debut on United Arab Emirates-based label Bedouin Records. The release is described as a “post-internet mini-album that stacks static noise, ferocious drums and warped echoes into 7 unconventionally abstract club tracks.”

For our first Influences feature, Jigga guides us through some of the records that influenced his latest mini-album, Lillllill.
