Forged from the hills of Pōneke, melded by the breakneck BPM of modern China, Kaishandao (Mandarin for ‘machete’) produces a sound of complex origins and eccentric imperfections — chopping a lost and found heritage into a playful mash-up of delirious dance music.

Influenced by the Wellington DIY scene and Chengdu underground, Kristen is also the co-founder of online platform cdcr.live (http://cdcr.live), and touring label Kiwese (www.kiwese.co.nz), which has toured artists including Orchestra of Spheres, The All Seeing Hand, mr Sterile Assembly, WOMB and Strange Stains.

She returns to Aotearoa this summer for a smattering of shows and pies.
