New tracks of forward thinking club music from Kenyan producer Slikback, continuing in rule shredding, genre melding form.

Two new enigmatic originals, and two remixes - one from Sarmacja, natives of his current home, Poland, who give Quoios a dub workout, the other from Bristolian producer Sunun, spinning out Klout in a less pressured environment.

On the A side, Quoios charts a looming, atmospheric build-up gives way to driving, chain saw wielding industrial beats layered with vocals and samples. Klout meshes dark tones and complex rhythms, with a very slight nod to acid on the sounds. Both tracks are warehouse-ready dancefloor weapons.

On the B side, Sarmacja’s dub pulses from the off, introducing a strand of keening vocals and cosmic flushes. Sunun’s remix offers a slower, exploratory and haunting re-imagining of Klout.
