With a root based loosely in UK garage, ‘Ga Ga’ stands as Kayla Painter’s unnerving take on a beloved genre.

The track clearly exudes influences from the likes of Sepalcure frontman Machinedrum, as well as suggesting further listening in the form of Japanese, sonic femme fatale, Jemapur. Its scattered drums act as a welcome nod to the sporadic two step of old, while crystalline stabs and a healthy sub beef out the remaining sound profile.

Ambience is a term more often associated with niceties, but the unsettling nature of this ensemble sets the sharp production much closer to the blade.
