Shaping a deep, calming vibe, SHIKIMO aims to create music to color every part of the day. Iowa native Ryan Unash, aka SHIKIMO, first found a passion for electronic music in 2010, when he was introduced to the music of Basshunter. He has since been influenced by acts such as deadmau5, Purity Ring, Com Truise, and Carbon Based Lifeforms. In 2011, with the aid of his musical background - including double bass and piano - he began producing his own music using FL Studio. Starting with trance, and expanding over the years into other genres including ambient, house, chill-out, downtempo, wave, and experimental/future, SHIKIMO’s true calling is now pinpointed in chill, atmospheric sounds.
