Capitol K Kristian Craig Robinson aka 'Capitol K' first emerged a decade ago at the forefront of the burgeoning electronic scene, releasing two groundbreaking electronic albums on Planet Mu, “Sounds Of The Empire” (1999) and “Island Row” (2000). His experiments with Lo-if Guitar Noise, Collarge & found sound merged with strong Melodies and Falsetto Vocals lead to to the pioneering what the critics later called "Folktronica". On return from time spent in South America Capitol K has been excited by new Digital Cumbia and Cumbia Sonidero movements coming in particular from Argentina and Mexico and is currently making productions and performances inspired by this infectious rhythm.
