Hailing from the United Kingdom, Ikotu surely has a knack for creating immersive soundscapes. Ranging from beautiful, morose, piano pieces to extremely complex, broken, hip-hop influenced beats - Ikotu seems to keep listeners satisfyingly haunted time after time.
EP / December 30, 2015
“Life is such a strange thing. The constant realization of existence can be overwhelming to say the least. When SVNSET WAVES released this 4-track EP by Ikotu, I was at an incredibly dark place in my life. I remember sitting in my room with all the lights off, and listening to this EP over and over. This EP is so unique. It is emotive and expressive. It’s impending yet hopeful. This collection of music deeply resonated with me and comforted me in a time when I felt very alone. After the EP’s release, hearing stories of other people who were touched just as deeply was so inspiring to me, reminding me again that on that night in my dark room, I wasn’t really alone. This EP is deeply special to me and is one of my proudest releases to date.” -Corbin Cary
