RATKING- "Comic"

Videosadmin2 Comments

Experimental hip hop outfit RATKING have a new EP out titled WIKI93, and it's out via XL Recordings. I'm loving the mix of influences coming through on this track. There are elements of glitchy electronica, noise, and grime flowing through the track "Comic." Groups like Death Grips are an obvious comparison, but RATKING's aggression feels more like some punk enthusiasm rather than a dangerous mental illness. All comparisons aside, there's a lot to dig about this track. There's plenty of energy, details in the instrumental, and a gritty aesthetic.
