Biography

Kikumoto Allstars is Australia’s Cam Farrar holding a candle to the original house music,
producing with all analogue synthesizers and drum machines including the famous Roland range (TR-909, TR-808, TR-707, SH-101, Juno range, JX-8P and of course the TB-303 which started the acid house revolution), paying homage to Tadao Kikumoto, the brains behind these now legendary machines.

Cam Farrar was first drawn to electronic music when he saw Devo on Australian television in the early 1980’s. From here his thirst for more led him to a mixed bag of music from disco to punk. As a teenager, inspired by punk and new wave, Farrar began his career in bands, hitting the skins and songwriting. His band The Jonsen Engine gathered a strong following in hometown Ballarat and played support to heroes of Farrar’s including Fugazi. With the 90’s dance music revolution underway Farrar was swept up in what would become the 2nd wave of the acid dance revolution. Australia was now experiencing it’s own halcyon days with warehouse and bush parties beating through the musical landscape. The DIY ethos of dance appealed. Farrar began searching for the elusive gear that made the distinctive sounds. He started spending more time with his keyboards and sequencer, building what is now an impressive home studio.
