    • 1. DCKHDBTCH
    • 2. Ingredients
    • 3. Shouldn't Be Here

    Ikonika returns to Planet Mu with three new tracks which follow up her debut album on Hyperdub and lots of work as an in demand remixer and a brilliant DJ.

    On the A, ‘Dckhdbtch’ kicks off with a punchy soca-ish white noise drum pattern before switching the mood with a lonely arpeggiated melody and bassline, before her infamous crying synth melodies break out into a bitter sweet euphoria. ‘Ingredients’ opens with lulling, dark chords and minimal, slapping drums while slowly developing some sweet melodies and fragile chilling orchestral strings, sounding like a repeated snapshot of incidental music stolen from a dramatic moment of a film. ‘Shouldn’t Be Here’ is the most ‘techno’ of the tracks; huge, sorrowful chords backed with a 4/4 beat that’s accented with off beat cymbals and an undulating bassline, the sad feeling is only heightened with a passionate, far away female vocal and a soft lead melody.
