7. ARCA- KiCK i
Image from Screencast
In February, electronic experimentalist Arca dropped a 62-minute song framed as a pirate-radio broadcast from a post-singularity future that begins with whispers of a “diva constructed.” KiCk i, released four months later, is the Barcelona-based musician’s more straightforward take on diva-hood. Bullet casings fall to the floor on opener “Nonbinary,” but Arca isn’t under attack: “I do what I wanna do when I wanna do it,” she deadpans, and then proceeds to prove it by remaking herself with each track. KiCk i is her first record to prominently feature several guest singers, with Björk, Rosalía, SOPHIE, and Shygirl all present to witness her various metamorphoses. She turns liquid on the synth-sheathed “Time,” raps on the chaotic “Riquiquí,” and glitches with her voice pitched high on “Rip the Slit.” Presented as the first of four eventual albums, KiCk i shares all the promise of becoming, in both its pain and its joy. –Colin Lodewick.

The slow-motion electronic pop of Bullion’s “Hula” soundtracks a series of vacations, recounted as pleasantly fogged memories. The music is seductive, almost narcotic, with synth pads exhaling in long, overlapping layers. But something feels off. The instrumental break following an unexpected chord change lurches like a luxury liner in choppy water; melodic lines become queasily detuned. The London-based producer-songwriter is taciturn as a lyricist and a singer, but such off-center musical moments help to fill in the blanks, suggesting that holidays and hula dancing offered only partial reprieve from some looming anxiety.
9.INDIA JORDAN- FOR YOU

With euphoria in short supply and dance floors shuttered around the globe, 2020 hasn’t been particularly kind to dance music. Outside the context of booming sound systems and late-night revelry, even the most expertly crafted club tracks have lost some of their luster, which makes the glittering elation of “For You” all the more precious. Bounding along atop a turbo-charged filter-house template, the song gleefully reanimates the ghosts of French touch and harkens back to the days when house producers regularly (and rightfully) landed in the Top 40. As the title track of Jordan’s For You EP—an effort reflecting the London artist’s struggle to move past the homophobia and small-mindedness that pervaded their formative years in the North of England—the song is a joyous ode to self-love and self-acceptance that underscores the healing power of a good rave.

In contrast to the celebratory sound of Angolan kuduro, Manchester-based Nazar’s “rough kuduro” uses fractured rhythms and blasted digital textures to dig into the post-colonial past of the African nation of his family’s heritage. Between 1975 and 2002, the former Portuguese colony endured what has been described as “the worst war in the world”; Nazar’s Guerilla, inspired by the wartime journal of his father, a rebel general, doubles as a series of snapshots of the civil conflict. Tracks like “Arms Deal” and “UN Sanctions” put a grimly literal spin on the percussive shrapnel and gun-cock samples favored by grime and bass music; the birdsong and mournful vocal hook of “Retaliation” suggest that even moments of calm are soon ruptured by violence; on “Bunker,” throbbing helicopters punctuate Nazar’s murmured refrain of “Gun in my hands/Bullets in my chest.” But there are moments of tenderness, too: “Mother” is an ambient lullaby that cradles echoes of a distant choir—a glimmer of hope amid the wreckage.
