Ebbo Kraan’s Aletta EP sounds like a transmission from a universe where Public Enemy’s Bomb Squad production dictated the sound of pop music and El-P, Arca, and Evian Christ played the roles of high profile radio DJ’s.

Ripping synth textures, bludgeoning bass, unexpected sonic ruptures, and surprising moments of prettiness make opening one-two punch “Bag of Medicine” and “20” the easy stand out moments of the EP; haunting, piano-driven “Pian808” sounds like peak-era Mobb Deep filtered through Boiler Room sensibilities—a testament to the range of Kraan’s palette.

A dizzying introduction to an exciting talent.
