We just got back recently from a ten day tour of Europe. We played in Paris, London, Bielefeld, Liechtenstein, Insbruck, Salzburg and Vienna. Saw a lot of crazy World Cuppers out and about. The shows went well, we had great responses to the material from the new cd and I ate too much. Looks like we may go back for a quick one in September and then again in October, mostly around the Czech Rep. We played DC’s Black Cat last Fri and will be doing two nights at Sweet Rhythm (which used to be Sweet Basils) here in NYC.Next week I’ll be backing the awesome house diva Lisa Shaw at Joe’s Pub. We’re mostly playing stuff from her new CD ‘Cherry’ which is a bit of a departure for her. It’s still got a lot of the soul house flavor but with a twist of 80′s vibe.
"...mad programmed beats with full set acoustic assaults, resulting in an experience like surfing electronic/hip-hop waves with Afrika Bambaataa and Bernard Purdie..." - Ken Micallef, EQ Magazine
"Kids, don’t let you parents listen to this! It might
seriously blow their minds"-Katrina Richter, Rephlektor Magazine
"With atmospheric glitch-hop grooves steeped in cinematic clubspun downtempo, Surviving Freedom would be the
soundtrack if David Mancuso’s Loft ever went on a liquid MDMA-fueled pirate space rave." -Trace Blog
"Intelligent programming binds a sparse landscape of beat shards and textures...a lesson in postproduction and audio editing. All in the key of brooklyn.
...like being dropped in the middle of some uber sexy post modern mashup between Edit’s recent work and a 70’s porno classic.
...A configuration of... shifting elements and textures, disassembled layers restitched with a series of clicks, cuts, and warbling synth overtones. Soothing, alienating, and challenging simultaneously." -88
"Genji Siraisi shines on..."
Zach Danzinger, Modern Drummer
"Genre bending with the joy of discovery Genji creates a unique and memorable soundtrack..."

- 1986 SK-1 July 27, 2011It was 1986 and Casio had just come out with the first consumer priced audio sampler the SK-1 and at about $100 I had to have one although it did seem like a very expensive toy at the time. It was after all small and plastic. Here’s some music I made with it back in […]
