After honing his skills in the badly lit basements and velcro floored
clubs of Edinburgh, Akira Kiteshi AKA Tommy Forrest has pulled off a
meteoric ascension of nose bleeding velocity. With his debut release
Pinball smashing is way out of the Hip Hop scene crashing through the
walls of Dubstep landing main stage. Now a widely acknowledged UKBass
classic with plays across international radio, Pinball was also featured
in Universal's Step Up 3D and Jason Derulo's live shows!
Now a recognized leader of the form garnering support from a roll call
that includes names like Mixmaster Mike, Huw Stephens, Kissy Sellout &
Mary Anne Hobbs every new Akira creation is anticipated across the
electronic music gamut.
Far from the shy screen tanned studio hermit Tommy has also firmly
established his skills on stage with shows through out the US and Europe
there are very few pin free countries on the map hanging in the Akira
Kiteshi lab. Add new live collaborator Chris Hall aka B-Burg and the Akira Kiteshi
Live experience incorporates multi-synthesizer manipulation and deft
turntablism with his trademarked dancehall quaking bass!
