Artist content: Metrist & Akiko Haruna

  • Soraya Brouwer

Brighton-based, alternative-techno and Timedance producer Metrist, a.k.a. Joseph Higgins, along with experimental audio artist Akiko Haruna have recently been working together on a new project that combines the two producer's relative attributes, entitled KCOSAINT. With both producers having earned a reputation for unorthodox sound design aesthetics and out-there, forward-thinking beats, I decided to get in touch to find out what particular tools go into their creative process. I worked closely with the duo over the last two years to onboard them onto Native Instruments' hardware and software and asked them for their favorites from the REAKTOR User Library, along with some additional instruments for REAKTOR and the free REAKTOR Player.
