      jikuroux: music to... harvest your soul

      Sydney producer Jikuroux composes a moving, clanging mix to soundtrack some intense introspection.

      To celebrate the launch of her debut EP, Ruptured Pulse, i-D invites Sydney producer Jikuroux to take us on a journey through her favourite sounds. This mix dips the shimming voices of your most beloved Pop Princess — Britney, Ciara, Fergie — in some sort of primordial ooze, so they're distorted and dripping wet. It's punctuated by metallic clangs, and deep cavernous crashes: there's a city collapsing outside, but Jikuroux will stay inside the club while it all falls down.
