about

Sydney based producer and DJ Jikuroux returns to DECISIONS with four lucid tracks exhibiting her signature combo of glittering melodies and crushing drums. Citing a "reimagining [of] anxiety as something beautiful" as the core concept of the EP, Jikuroux forges a complex emotional journey in which dialectics of soft/hard, dark/light, clear/murky are repeatedly blurred and inverted.
'Cracked' opens the EP, sending plucked leads tumbling over a volcanic topography of bass and pads. Broody chords and a tough, low slung rhythm drive the anthemic 'Cradle Bay', while 'Themed Break' sees Jikuroux weave an elastic array of rhythmic and harmonic movements around a single recursive rnb "ooh". 'Hollow Grin' closes the EP with flutes and bells illuminating a bilious fog replete with ghoulish hisses and growling bass.
Terse, lithe and ornately HD, Cradle Bay is built to gently devastate both inside and outside the club. It drops on Friday 16 June (the morning after DECISIONS’ showcase with Polymorphism at Berghain, Berlin).
