Rockka – Carnage [Dopamine White]

5 min read

Continuing a strong spring season, Nikko.Z's Dopamine White welcomes Rockka back to the label for a new EP. Hailing from Sri Lanka Rockka aka Lakith Adikaram has been releasing his own unique style of progressive music for the better part of three years. Although younger than most of his contemporaries, the Nugegoda resident has already compiled an impressive resume, showcasing his music via Balkan Connection, Droid9, Freegrant Music and One Of A Kind, and in turn earning support from genre tastemaker Hernan Cattaneo. Having made his Dopamine White debut in 2021 with 'Night Rockets', Rockka now makes a welcome return to the label with a three-track showcase entitled 'Carnage'.

Beginning with the title selection 'Carnage', Rockka displays that groovy progressive style for which he has become known. Led by a tough chunky groove, its dance floor sensibility is high from the outset, as rhythms ripple and percussion flickers across the first act. Phasing atmospheres and a swaying arp descend over the hypnagogic groove leading into the break, bringing with them tension filled refrains and a slow tactful build which is sure to win over even the most discerning aficionados.

Selection two 'Mon Desir' finds Rockka continuing to operate at a creative peak as he crafts a midset percussive gem of a track. The Sri Lankan artist carries a mystical vibes through sweeping effects and haunting phasing, before a break of shimmering pads and misty melodies seals its emotive appeal.

The release concludes with the peak time vibes of 'Olimpus'. Tempo rises a touch but Rockka's uncanny ability to balance groove and atmosphere remains, as chugging grooves, lively percussive arrangements and an array of precise effects unite for a great sense of depth and space. The main break serves to further the narrative through waves of hazy refrains and phasing textures, eventually leading to a flurry of drums and a finale that is equal parts driving and cosmic. It rounds out three powerful tracks from Rockka, an artist who continues to excite as he emerges from Sri Lanka's burgeoning progressive scene.
