Geikha hails from Buenos Aires and is a musical omnivore, recently influenced by UK Garage and Chicago Footwork. "I call what I do a hybrid of Footwork & RKT (Argentinian Reggaeton)."
Geikha also presented at a recent Tidal Meetup - now available on the Eulerroom YT Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJSWNKUqgmM
Geikha's approach is heavily driven by extended samples including looped vocals and songs. Also prominent is extensive customization of Tidal, including keystroke aliases, custom functions, and building up a performance session with patterns and snippets in a single do block.
The blog profile includes a fascinating discussion of the nature of live coding and working in Tidal - "the most powerful sampler-sequencer in the world."
The meetup session is a must watch for anyone wanting to learn about the use of extended samples and customizing Tidal. Check it out!
