Boomkat Product Review:
femme culture co-founder Emma Kirby, aka Elkka, offers a lockdown journal on "Harmonic Frequencies", charting the six months until dancefloors reopened this summer, expressing her feelings with tight 2-step, euphoric ambient and driving electro.
It's not completely surprising that Kirby has received support from producers and DJs like Floating Points, Four Tet and Caribou. There's a similar sense of grit and swing on this EP's title track, that chops a wordless vocal into a tight 2-step shuffle and decorates it with experimental electronic elements that hint at more psychedelic realms. The EP was crafted by Kirby to document the six months leading to clubs re-opening in the UK, and she wrote the lead track for her first live show in two years.
The other tracks hint at different moods: 'escapism' is completely beatless, and sounds more in line with the placid environmental ambience of Japanese cult fave Hiroshi Yoshimura, while 'Voices' chops a vocal from Juliana Barwick into a taut house burner that sounds closer to Matthew Herbert or The Field.
