Jikkenteki

Producer Profile |  |  | March 14, 2010 | Posted by Basilisk

Jikkenteki (Rennis Buchner) is an American producer and label owner based in Akita, Japan, since 2004. He operates PAR-2 Productions, an underground psytrance label with a distinctly noncommercial approach.

The history of the Jikkenteki project goes back to 1999, the year in which Rennis, a formally trained musician, cobbled together a basic setup from low-end gear, primarily for use in a live performance context. Lacking even a computer sequencer until 2001, he was forced by technical constraints to innovate and improvise. Even after systematically upgrading his equipment and techniques in the years that followed, the Jikkenteki sound retains an undeniable sense of free-flowing spontaneity, a holdover from the early days of on-the-fly experimentation.

In crafting his original sound, Jikkenteki draws upon disparate elements of the dark, minimal, and full-on movements that have dominated psytrance over the course of the last decade, but no influence has been stronger than that of mid-nineties Goa trance. Rather than simply recreate and imitate the old school masters, Jikkenteki incorporates the essence of golden age Goa trance magic into his own personal production style.

Jikkenteki has been very active in releasing music since 2005. Aside from his work compiling and appearing on A Walk Through Neptune’s Garden and Mainspring Motion, he has found time to release a double-CD album of trance and downtempo music, The Long Walk Home, as well as the highly successful Flights Of Infinity. Jikkenteki is now taking a break from writing music after the release of his third studio album, The Beginning Is At The End, in 2009.

    Excellent music, guys. I liked this CD a lot. Great vibe.

  • Corban Brook says:

    Great album, spans through some different reaches of sound but maintains cohesion. Downloaded this a while ago but didn’t have a chance to listen to it all the way through until last night. Had it playing in the background during some intense Nexuiz DM (a video game like quake). The spooky ominous presence created by Amygdala – Oxylerator II mingled with the futuristic alien architecture perfectly and gave and the adrenaline rush really gave me the killer edge over my opponents. It wasnt long before the album had looped a 2nd time. I really got lost in it.

  • Psyentifica says:

    Great release with some top notch productions. Great vibes and melodies that flowed very smoothly but kept the energy high.

    stand out tracks:

    01 – Amygdala – Oxylerator II
    03 – ProSect – Tribalogic (Amygdala Remix)

    Exelent music! My favourite producer! Bravo!

  • dark man says:

    what music software u use??????????????

  • Jikkenteki says:

    Dark man:
    Which artist? I know the track I worked on, together with the late Symphonics tracks were all made on Cubase SX 3. Can’t speak for the other artists, but I recall there being quite a range of sequencers used on this one.

  • Amygdala says:

    Hi there – thanks for the nice comments (better late than never, eh?).

    I use Logic as sequencer. I think the two tracks on this one was done in version 4.7, so it could just as well be made on a pocket calculator… No, seriously, Logic is a terrific sequencer, even in the old days. Apart from that, Absynth is a splendid softsynth, anything Native Instruments does, really – and then I do my own plugs from time to time…

    Thanks again, cheers!

  • Ozric says:

    Since the recent release of Amygdala’s amazing album, I’ve been snooping around Ektoplazm looking for some of his tracks, and I stumbled upon this VA. ProSect – Tribalogic (Amygdala Remix) is FUCKING brilliant, I can’t stop listening to it! Congrats and thanks!!
