Tricky and Skepta’s creative partner Fifi Rong delivers vocals for a new track from collaborative music experiment ‘Ink Project.’
By Bubba Krishnamurti
Ink Project is a syncretic music project which touches on the fringes of dub, soul and electronica. UK producer Jez Lloyd brought together a widely varied cast of musicians to achieve a multi-layered soundscape that owes much to various bassy genres yet is unique unto it’s own.
Ink Project’s first release was ‘Feeding The Fire’ and featured British-Trinidad artist Coreysan and was recently followed by new full-length ‘Rhythm Spirit‘ with The End. The hauntingly simple tune hosts shimmering vocal delivery from UK-based-Chinese-British artist Fifi Rong. Rong’s whispy vocals on the track demonstrate impressive range and malleability without ever getting maximalist. Rong is notably a previous collaborator with Tricky, Skepta, and Phaeleh. Rong is well known for her vocal feature on the title track of Skepta’s album Konnichiwa.
The End featuring Fifi Rong is available December 11th via Blind Colour. Pre-order the singles and remixes here.
