Kimyan Law is a musician and producer, who started making music using instruments improvised from various everyday objects at a very young age. Deep explorations into his Congolese roots have led him to create complex mosaics of ancient sound with modern aesthetics. Having its roots in Drum & Bass, the music flies far beyond the confines of that often-formulaic genre, expanding sonic ranges and disrupting standard arrangements.
With three critically acclaimed albums under his belt, Kimyan Law has founded his own, brand new label, [ + + + ] (pronounced ‘Plus Plus Plus’ Music) on which he started to release his fourth long-player in form of EPs, through which he tells a story over the course of the year:
the Emblem Of Peace. Four tribes, four clouds of sound, four colours and four EPs to represent them. To inaugurate and celebrate the first physical release of his newly founded label, Kimyan Law presents his brand new Live-Show. A journey through the auditory landscapes of the Emblem of Peace.
Detailed production and an interdisciplinary approach are quintessential for Kimyan’s stories: from his traditional face painting, to the symbolism in both the arrangements and artworks, to the narrative interweaved in each work.
The more Kimyan explores and builds this unique universe, the more he finds, too. A vast traversal of drum & bass, UK garage and cinematic scoring techniques, Kimyan Law’s music and art allows him to understand his own place in the world as a Congolese Austrian, a grey child forever torn between two tribes, two histories, denied connection with his family and motherland due to years and years of war. Strong themes of tension, passion, yearning and faith have drawn Kimyan to this point.
Kimyan’s first release since 2019’s critically acclaimed album ‘Yonda’, the ‘Emblem Of Peace’ LP was written during some of his most productive and prolific periods of flow state to date, during a time where he finally met his family for the first time in over 10 years and spiritually reconnect with the places and people who mean the most to him. You can hear it in his music, you can feel it in his universe; [ + + + ] marks the start of a whole new creatively ambitious journey for Kimyan and a whole new immersive adventure for us, the listeners.
