Slikback: ARATTA

Of the two Slikback EPs which popped up unexpectedly recently, this was the one got excited about the most. The first track is just pure molten fire, waiting to peel your face right off. “OPS” starts out atmospheric and just a bit jittery, and then it also jumps into blaze mode. “ARC” is a more footwork-adjacent panic attack, also dousing you in a righteous wash of flames. “RUE” has a delicate, dramatic vocal loop which gets diced with precision over an ominous trap beat. Short EP, but if you want a compact example of why he’s one of the most exciting producers right now and you don’t feel like devoting time to either of his 30-track opuses, this is worth a taste.
