Blogovision 2021: Στο Νο. 5 του Γεράσιμου Slickback - Melt

Kenya-born, Uganda-based producer Fredrick Mwaura Njau, who records under the name Slikback, released six EPs throughout 2021, which made his year far more prolific than most. Yet it’s his full-length album MELT that found him going the hardest, dialing up the noise and pushing the faders till the knobs break off. MELT is club music immersed in acid and dredged through barbed wire, a post-industrial machine-gun fire of footwork and IDM that embraces the spirit of collaboration with like-minded iconoclasts such as Objekt, KMRU and Ziúr. The result span from the slow-burning (“Ogdru”) to the unsettled (“Dissociation”) to the relentlessly aggressive (“Banshee”), not just deconstructing club music but at times obliterating it entirely—an out-of-control inferno of beats, bass and all-consuming distortion.
