“GEOPOLITICS” is the second single from SONIKKU’s forthcoming MOLG EP, out May 5th on Steel City Dance Discs.
MOLG — or Machines of Loving Grace — looks fifty years ahead to the future of clubbing in dystopian London, after society has collapsed into lawlessness. Inspired by Metal Gear Solid 2’s early predictions of AI overthrowing humanity, the EP finds SONIKKU at the mercy of machine learning technologies, now too sophisticated to control.
Inspired by the off-grid warehouse and forest raves that placated London’s ravers during lockdown, SONIKKU’s vision of the future is ungovernable. As successive governments fall to the whims of advanced technologies, SONIKKU submits to them, offering his likeness to be bent and distorted in the video for the EP’s first single “Lifestyle”.
