elkkle: Soft Erasure
If we're talking pure sonics, then elkkle takes the cake. The Melbourne producer turns the vibes up all the way and lets this low-end heavy track all shake out. Adorned with buzzy synths, haunting resonances, and fizzy ambience, elkkle explores a realm of experimental pop that sounds as if BASECAMP got lost in the middle of the desert and with their last delusional breaths hired an MC to lazily rap over their beats. And that's 100% a compliment. Don't miss Soft Erasure.
“It’s hard for me to place where these sounds come from. It all came out of nowhere one day when my voice was breaking and the tone created this strange persona that I had never taken on seriously. I really liked it and so continued to build the track around this staged melancholic attitude, not knowing where it was going.” - elkkle
