Following up to a pair of high-rated EPs on Tel-Aviv’s Malka Tuti, unclassifiable Romanian duo Khidja return to the label this spring with their new battle-ready single, ‘Plot‘, equipped to provide optimal peaktime enjoyment on the dancefloor and into the fields – an auspicious promise ahead of a festival season that shall hit the mark once again.
Blending raw, live-recorded drums, blazing riffs and springy acid pulsations into a dizzying hurricane of high-voltage electronics, the pair’s wrought-up B-side banger ‘Am I Really Here‘ packs everything away in its wake, like an insatiable pulsar absorbing up to the slightest bit of energy to better spit shock waves of shapeless dark matter in the basement. Expect maximal deflagration, but with that pinch of Eastern folk music variability that makes Khidja’s sound all the more unique and valuable, and this track in particular, a highly infectious agent tailored for extensive club use.
Plot is released via Malka Tuti on 23rd April, pre-order a copy from Juno.
