Shafkkat & Rojaz release “Her”
Written by admin on 25/01/2022
‘Her’ is a collaborative track between London based electronic artists Shafkkat and Rojaz. The record blurs the lines between dance and electronica, creating a captivating journey of curiosity, pain and regret.
Following Shafkkat‘s debut EP, which received radio support on Rinse FM, Balamii and resulted in a guestmix on Reprezent Radio, he delves into a more intricate sonic palette that hints at multiple genre influences, as he steps away from a purely club-focused essence.
Alongside is Spanish artist Rojaz, who’s work explores the realm of indie electronica, as she combines ethereal harmonies that fuse with percussive elements inspired by the UK dance scene.
Through the blending of dynamic percussion, intricate synths and Rojaz’s serene vocals, ‘Her’ creates an upbeat yet intimate sonic journey. The warm keys enhance this, luring the listener into a melancholic world before the unique sample of Rojaz’s grandmother (a 1950s Spanish voice actress) serves as a smooth transition into a more chaotic realm – also acting as the perfect homage to her roots.
As the track develops, more complex vocal chops and synths are subtly thrown into the mix, with Shafkkat creating a broad body of sounds to digest. The 808’s pack an aggressive undertone that lends the track it’s sonic edge, balancing delicate chord progressions with dance-inspired drum work.
‘Her’ is a creative fusion of these two artists’ influences, offering a fleeting moment of escapism as you are seamlessly transported from headphones to the dance floor.
