Slikback has shared a new single, ‘SKIN TIGHT’, a joint effort with Van Boom taken from the former’s untitled album, which is expected to arrive before October.
The track is a dark, abrasive dive into sounds somewhere between techno, weightless, industrial, and dubstep.
The single is taken from a forthcoming full-length that sees Slikback, AKA Kenyan experimentalist Fredrick Njau, team up with artists across the globe. In this case, Kuwait-based Van Boom, whose work has created waves through the Gulf region and beyond.
Last year Slikback contributed two tracks to a split 12″ on PAN with Soda Plains, while early 2021 saw him appear on the Unsound Intermission compilation, which also featured SOPHIE & Jlin, Varg2™ & VTSS, 33EMYBW. His first vinyl release landed in 2018 on the Ugandan label, Hakuna Kulala.
