Boomkat Product Review:
Ikonika crushes yet again with a luxurious gold-weight VIP of 'What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About?' and an unmissable Jersey x techno refix of 'Nobody' from NYC gawd quest?onmarq. Spiraling.
Following up last year's "Bodies" EP, Don't Be Afraid presents a bumper remix pack, bolstered by a new version of 'What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About?'. Ikonika's VIP takes the original track up a notch, adding heavier kicks and more fwd momentum seemingly in anticipation of clubs pushing their doors open later this year.
Remixes come from London-based Swamp81 affiliate SUMgil, who reminds of the early days of eerie, slithering halfstep with his wobbly Tectonic-esque remix of 'What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About?', and an 'ardkore version from Midnight Snacc.
Our pick is a special kick-heavy version of 'Bodies' from quest?onmarq, who impresses yet again with a slice of club pressure that sits a few steps ahead of everyone else in an intergalactic smoking room.
