From the label: From the label:

"In 2015, SVNSET WAVES teamed up with Scotland-based producer, Ikotu, and delivered a four-track EP of experimental beats, titled “Halved”. It was received with high praise, with support from Majestic Casual and Beats One Radio. ” was followed by a three-track EP “Clockwork”, released on German label prrrrrrr in 2016.

Since then, Ikotu has been quietly working away, apparently putting together multiple EPs. However, aside from a few loose singles here and there, his audience has been patiently awaiting a new collection of tunes. In 2020, plans began unfolding between prrrrrrr and SVNSET WAVES to collaboratively release a new collection of Ikotu goodness. The 6 track EP “Impenetrable Glass Box” combines Ikotu's signature texturally rich and experimental beats with jazz and lounge-inspired live instrumentation.

Oliver is also responsible for painting the artwork used for this latest release, chosen '…partly because a chaotic arrangement of saturated colors on a pitch black void seems an appropriate metaphor for many things,” he says, “and partly because it's square.' "
