So this one is more on the harder side. [Slikback](https://slikback.bandcamp.com/) is an artist from Nairobi, Kenya who describes his music as experimental, dark ambient, noise and techno. Bandcamp [calls it a variation of drill music](https://daily.bandcamp.com/lists/drill-list), which I don’t know anything about. It’s rough with a growling bassline and fast hihat patterns, and so much more than just the texture. I didn’t regret starting to explore his music with the album [///](https://slikback.bandcamp.com/album/-), if you want to do the same.
It feels to me his music is less about telling stories, but more—like poetry—about transporting sentiments and emotions. And with its 90 minutes or so, it’s quite a trip indeed.
