Slikback

Slikback (real name: Freddy M Njau) is an electronic producer from Nairobi, Kenya. His 2018 debut EP Lasakaneku launched Nyege Nyege Tapes’ offshoot label, Hakuna Kulala. He began making music a couple of years ago implementing different elements from global and local genres in his sound. Slikback started playing sets around Kampala (Uganda) and at Nyege Nyege Festival before having his European premiere at Poland’s Unsound Festival at the end of 2018. His 2019 calendar included gigs at CTM, Sónar, and Dekmantel, along with a string of dates across China and Japan. Lasakaneku was followed in 2019 by Tomo, a six-track EP capturing an even darker, more agitated snapshot of his sound. He also released two collaborative ep’s with svbkvlt artists such as hyph11e and 33emybw in the same year.
