When an artist references a literary device (ice-nine) from Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle, I take notice. You can’t see me, up from the couch, applauding my computer, but it’s happening. Borka is a Slovenian hip-hop producer who has a flair for sneaking in synths within a classic boom bap landscape. Like how ice-nine quickly freezes up large bodies of water, “Ice Nine” acts quickly to overcome your earbuds with chilly orchestral elements and trickling leads. These two tracks come from his EP What Sticks dropping MAY 30th. These hip-hop joints are definitely worth a spin.
