Glasgow-based, Slovenia-born producer Nightwave discovered 18-year-old Ashnikko on Soundcloud and, when she discovered that the North Carolina rapper had moved to London, jumped at the chance to get in the studio with her. Their first collaboration is "Kiss Kat," and it's as sharp as it is sassy. Ashnikko drops lines like don't waste your flowers trying to woo my panties off without batting an eyelid over Nightwave's spare yet sassy ghettotech-inspired beat. "We wanted to make something cute and girly yet badass and when Ashton belted out those verses in one go I was amazed and knew I'd found my muse," Nightwave told The FADER. "We can't wait to release all the stuff we've been working on!" Nightwave's new EP Nightlife is out December 1st. Plus, read what Nightwave had to say about changing male-dominated studio culture.
