Berlin’s beloved Budakid makes his return to Moscomans Disco Halal label for his second offering with ‘If Chickens Could Talk’. As enigmatic and enthralling as the title would suggest, the artist creates his own psychedelic escape for the dance floor. Drawing on a love of acoustic, floating melodies, both ‘If Chickens Could Talk’ and ‘Over Not Over’ pull you in with addictive synths, whilst the pulsating riffs guide the listener into a dreamy head space. At points the EP appears ambient and at others completely euphoric, it’s the perfect display of Budakid’s unique take on dance music and one that knows no limit.
In recent years Budakid has made quite the name for himself thanks to a slew of releases on DIYnamic, Exploited and Last Night On Earth. His last venture with Disco Halal came last year, with the EP ‘Ochre Tuesday’ that took us on a journey through his universe, and we couldn’t get enough. ‘If Chickens Could Talk’ and ‘Ochre Tuesday’ will both feature on a 12” vinyl, accompanied by the original artworks made by the artist himself. With these impressive collections of tracks coming so early in his career, nothing stops Budakid from becoming one of the greats.
On the creative thought process behind ‘If Chickens Could Talk’, Budakid states: "Living in a world where we have the illusion of doing the right thing. But what if chickens could talk and tell us we're doing something completely wrong." That quote sums up the weird and wonderful nature of this EP - born out of an alternative outlook on our lifestyle, the artist questions the world we live in through the power of electronic music.
