equiknoxx, our favorite dystopian dancehall crew, are set release a pair of eps on their label from artists rtkal and shokryme. the two recently collaborated on dreamy track ‘b.b.s.’ (which stands for “biggest bumboclaat spliff”) produced by equiknoxx member gavsborg.
rtkal is an artist from birmingham whose herbs & praiseep is two years in the making and you can tell by its precision. rtkal describes equiknoxx music as “the home for weird mcs” and his avant approach fits right in.
kingston native shokryme is a perfect pairing with rtkal (it’s no wonder they’ve both included ‘b.b.s.’ on their respective eps.) he will release his own three-song collection bandana at the same time. it includes the track ‘drop’ featuring frisco of boy better know. ‘drop’ was one of the unnamed standouts on swing ting’s recent bananas fact mix and is available to stream in full for the first time below.
rtkal’s herbs & praise and shokryme’s bandana are both out now, released on friday, april 28, via equiknoxx music.
