Ikonika's "DKHDBTCH," from her new Planet Mu EP of the same name, has three distinct things happening at once. A) Loose snare like heavy sand (will hurt your ears) B) Anonymous Middle Eastern restaurant music, where some discarded pink cassette over falafel is best thing u ever heard C) sad synthesizers. Where do you belong? Genre rundowns are a real bummer but this is like an octopus with 13 arms (+ three eyes). The bonus not disserving you, catch those extra fish or whatever with the sticky tentacle pods, but you are still outside the mean of regularity, living somewhere between land and the center of the earth, creatures of the deep heavily beautiful if you're there to look. In other words, totes punishing.
