Android Lust is the industrial solo project of Shikhee, that combines elements of rock, industrial, gothic and classical styles into a blend of music that she describes as "electronic and dark."

History

Android Lust is a solo project of the musician Shikhee. Shikhee was born in Bangladesh, schooled in England and later in the United States of America. Android Lust borrows elements from a variety of styles, producing a sound that is dark, icy, and fiercely emotional.

After two independent label releases (including 1998's critically acclaimed debut Resolution) Shikhee released The Dividing on her own, bringing her to the attention of Projekt Records, who quickly signed her and re-released the album.Outburn Magazine calls The Dividing "unconventional and adventurous - 10 out of 10" while the Boston Phoenix says "The Dividing never misfires; it feels almost - but not quite - slick, its arranging smart, its themes ingenious." Jane Magazine said "The Dividing is filled with intensely passionate lyrics delivered in low whispers and startling, penetrating screaming."

In addition, a video was shot for the song "Stained" by director Dan Ouellette (whose credits include production design on David Bowie's "Dead Man Walking" video and The Birthday Massacre's award-nominated "Blue" video). "Stained" has received regular airplay on music video shows and channels across the United States and Canada, as well as "120 Minutes" on MTV Latin America and Australia's music video show "Rage." "Stained" and other songs from The Dividing have also been featured heavily on CBS' "NCIS" (including an on-air mention of the band's name) and MTV's "The Real World" and "Road Rules."

Shikhee's third full length album, Devour, Rise, and Take Flight, was released on Feb. 21, 2006 (13 years ago). "Dragonfly," the first single for the album, was released on Oct. 18. The album included a video for the song, again directed by Dan Ouellette, and keeps the bizarre style of her "Stained" video, using futuristic, yet disturbing, mechanical pieces.

About Shikhee
Originally from Bangladesh, Shikhee was sent away from the unstable political environment by her parents for schooling in England. In 1999 (20 years ago) she moved to New York City. She also has a cat named Motu, after her MOTU hard disk recording system.

Equipment
Shikhee uses an Apple G4 with dual 867 MHz processors running Mac OS X, and a 400 MHz G4 running Mac OS 9. Running Digital Performer as an audio/MIDI sequencing software and the modular soft synthesizer Reaktor as her main synthesizer, as well as an Access Virus, Ensoniq ESQ-1, a Synthesizers.com modular, and a vintage Korg Z1.

For vocals and vocal processing, Shikhee uses a Neumann TLM 103 microphone, a Great River preamp, and an Empirical Labs Distressor, which is an outboard compressor.
