Slikback

Slikback (real name: Freddy M Njau) is an electronic producer from Nairobi, Kenya mainly focusing on noise, bass and high intensity rhythms, taking elements from different genres like trap, techno, gqom and more to create his own unique blend. He landed on the scene in 2018 with his debut EP Lasakaneku and released tracks with PAN and SVBCVLT before a prolific run of self-released EPs and LPs in 2020 and 2021 garnering him consistent accolades from Bandcamp, RA, and The Quietus. Njau made his European premiere at Unsound Festival in 2018 and has since toured Europe extensively including performances at CTM, Sónar, Club To Club and Dekmantel. His latest LP, MELT, is a collaborative effort including artists such as Objekt, Tzusing, KMRU, and Ziur which he quickly followed with releases produced together with Brodinski, Shapednoise and Giant Swan, all at the end of 2021. 2022 kicked off with a new EP and will see his debut live AV show, VOID, with Weirdcore presented at commissioning festivals Unsound, Rewire, and donaufestival.
