Shikimi's latest Facebook post
Star anise is known in Japan as shikimi. This plant is higly toxic and can cause hallucinations and epilepsy. Therefore it is unsuitable for consumption.
The reason for choosing the name is because artists are also known as "stars". The goal of Shikimi Records is managing wayward indie projects.
Nearby the Shikimi studio occasionally appear cats. Lela was a stray cat who got lost at young age and searched a home to stay. Over time she was frequently around while making music. That’s why the basic idea to implement a cat into the logo came spontaneously. With a turntable / vinyl as eyes and a needle as mouth, the draw was finished.
