Avant-electronica producer, singer and songwriter KUČKA today shares MssingNo’s remix of her latest single, ‘Ascension‘, as she continues to open up her creative vaults and ease herself into the solo spotlight. Listen HERE.
Embracing ‘Ascension‘s core of continual growth in the face of life’s challenges, enigmatic London producer MssingNo matches the lyricism of KUČKA’s original with a slow-rising textural wave that gracefully reaches towards an ever-increasing intensity. Spotlighting the Perth-born, LA-based artist’s fragile voice via his vocal-forward approach, MssingNo places KUČKA at the centre of his reimagining, wrapping the fractured, submerged beauty of her songwriting in dripping, glassinine synths, warping bass and half-time percussion. The remix follows the original single receiving praise from NME, Dummy, This Song Is Sick, Earmilk and more, alongside airplay support from triple j, Rinse FM, SoundCloud radio, FBi Radio, RAGE, MTV and more. Plus inclusions across Spotify and Apple Music‘s weekly New Music playlists, alongside Top Shelf Electronic, Indie Dancefloor, Front Left, Indie Arrivals, Future Sounds, New In Indie and more internationally.
Following July’s ‘Contemplation‘, ‘Ascension‘is KUČKA’s second new single of 2020 and comes off the back of a banner previous 12 months, having released her first solo material in 3 years with the Flume-assisted ‘Drowning‘ before following it up in short succession with the Nosaj Thing-co-produced ‘Real‘ – the #1 most played song on triple j in November 2020. A prolific writer, KUČKA has long aligned herself with some of the most exciting artists working on the frontiers of hip hop and electronic music today, sharing credits with Flume, SOPHIE, Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky, and more. With her steady and selective recent output drawing praise from the FADER, Fact Magazine, Clash Music, NME, Earmilk, Flaunt and many more, she is now shining that spotlight back onto herself and her inimitable talents.
