Producer/DJ/songwriter SONIKKU drops his wildly diverse, multi-genre, multi-collab album chronicling an insane rave night, ‘Whirlwind of Malevolence’ inc. focus track ‘Nail Shop’ ft. British Iranian powerhouse producer/songwriter/vocalist Orchid, out now on Bella Union.

‘Nail Shop’ ft Orchid: literally about having a manicure, the combination of energy-rich, elasticated, hopping, jumping bass notes, string chords and disjointed chunks of melody, along with Orchid’s vibrato, breathy voice, has a ‘J-Lo does almost-rap’ vibe and is simply and gloriously a bundle of dancey fun.

‘The most pop RnB song on the album, it’s about an imaginary someone who finds confidence from getting their nails done, almost like protective weapons,’ says Sonikku.

‘Whirlwind of Malevolence’ LP: London-based SONIKKU’s second album is a hot blizzard of electronica, hip hop, europop, trance, electronica… with titles like ‘Unhinged’, ‘Twisted’, ‘Wonky’, ‘Runaway’ and ‘Debaucherous’, well, we’ve all had at least one of those nights… From the in-your-face bounce of ‘Enter the Chat’ to the Euro-trance heartache of ‘Lipstick Stain’, he shares a gamut of genres and emotions, intricate beats, high octane melodies, tied together by SONIKKU’s signature tech savvy and sheer hedonistic joy.

Add to that, a sparkling roster of global collab partners: Australian dancefloor maverick PartiBoi69, female UK live-coding pioneer DJ Dave, Brooklyn-based R&B songstress Bayli (‘Enter the Chat’), Spanish underground icon Raky Ripper on the bilingual ‘Wonky’, NYC It Girl Miss Madeline, the Lagos, Nigeria-based rapper Deto Black, who lends ‘Unhinged’ a late 90s/contemporary R&B vibe.

‘This album is extremely varied as I wanted to include all the genres I listen to and reflect as much of my personality as possible. I’ve always been told ‘you’re too pop for dance, too dance for pop’. I like sitting in that weird zone of uncertainty.’  Join Sonikku in his ‘place of genuine fun.’

Full LP ‘Whirlwind of Malevolence’ inc. ‘Nail Shop’ ft. Orchid is out now. Get it here.
