Slikback is a Kenyan DJ and producer. After joining the Nyege Nyege collective in Kampala in mid-2017, he developed a unique dark yet accessible sound, drawing from a sonic palette including footwork, trap, grime and a variety of contemporary underground African club styles. His debut EP, Lasakaneku, was released in 2018 by Hakuna Kulala, a Kampala-based label exploring new voices from the region. Slikback continues to create new interesting sounds and collaborate with amazing vocal talents from Kampala. He also has a new project called o g n i k i with Polish producer Morgiana Hz, exploring and merging their respective universes.
