RESHAFT is a Collaborative Project of Mizkami Ryuta (a.k.a Motoro Faam, mulllr) and Yui Onodera. Their music contains elements of minimal dub techno, industrial techno, ambient and experimental music. Be it abstract drone works or minimal avant techno. RESHAFT’s music reflects a particular way of merging beats and atmospheric soundscapes into slowly evolving compositions. And rhythmic suite, integrating digital anomalies, walls of distortion, micro-noises, voices and field recordings, blending techno grooves with dark textures, always on the edge between experimental music and club culture.
