The stand out track from the Bristol artiste’s ‘Motions’ EP. The futuristic, airy synth backdrop on ‘Enigma’ occupies all the space but never too much of your attention as the many layers of Chikaya’s vocals stand proud (and so they damn well should).
The same can’t be said for the percussion elements whose sonics don’t reflect the production’s strength in other areas. The high click on the third beat too often knocked us out of the trance we found ourselves falling into. If this sound is her direction of travel, we’re excited to hear what more is to come from Chikaya in 2018.
