Modern Pressure is a milestone for Ikin, written at a time that was the producer’s hardest financially but most creative musically. Selling equipment to pay the rent, Ikin wrote track after track in quick succession, honing his skills, using the process as both a form of escapism and reflection.
The resulting album is a mirror of this struggle, a collision of stomach-churning bass and searing percussion that overwhelms your senses, staying with you long after the music has subsided. Ikin manages to harness a variety of influences, folding the sound of early 80s industrial and no wave with the relentless pulse of house and techno, the intense low-end of hardcore and the eerie mood of John Carpenter’s most menacing soundtracks.
An album with defined narrative that looks to the past without ever losing sight of the future. Dark, shimmering and textured, Modern Pressure is an album for our era - damaged, but not without hope.
