"Neikka RPM is a new Big Beat Gothtronica duo based in New York. Listeners will find their music to be soulful, fragile and subtly aggressive. Thick textures react with relentless pulsing grooves while Dominique's enticing vocals innocently slither into the mixes.
Neikka RPM Music is Edgy, Dark and Seductive
From the sonar depths of New York rises the ferociously alluring Industrial N' Beats act, Neikka RPM.
Neikka RPM is the next generation of dark club music that many describe as the apocalyptic fusion of Front 242 (anno 2002)'s hi-energy with the Starseeds's sexy & shimmering feel. A unique mixture of soulful sonic textures and aggressive beats set the mood of entrapment as Dominique's bewitching vocals gently lead the masses into submission.
What would become Neikka RPM happened completely by chance, a simple meeting of two strangers. Dominique and Richard were drawn to each other on Valentine's Day amongst the shifting shadows of a New York Goth club. They soon discovered that they were both possessed and lured by the same ghostly sonic obsession, a unique and haunting journey into seduction that has manifested itself as the music of Neikka RPM.
Neikka RPM emerged onto the scene in 2001 and has since continued to make appearances on many chart-climbing compilations as well as several film soundtracks. The explosive introduction of Neikka RPM has now transformed into a full force spiraling climax ahead of their highly anticipated debut album. The seeds for the invasion have been sown and the time has come to harvest the forbidden fruit known as Neikka RPM - a new trademark for female-fronted modern electronica.
