MELT

Slikback

2021

Slikback’s dense, dramatic textures work brilliantly in their own right, and when applied to the work of others via collaboration or remix, it can be equally astonishing. Thus the impact of 2021’s MELT, with contributions by sixteen “Friends + Fam,” as he puts it in the liner notes, turned into an awesome cascade of frenetic power. A sense of how to ramp up tension and space is fully evident on “KHORNE,” working with 111X, while “DISSOCIATION,” where his partner is the equally powerful KMRU, builds from near silence into a fierce cresting wave.
