Knock Knock Who's Dead is the first compilation to be released by Kikimora Tapes. With a predominance of Chicago, Berlin and Toronto-based artists, it’s a 60 minute mixtape of dark, blurry vibes, leading the listener through charred post-techno remains to dark noise and funereal ambient with no apologies along the way. Including contributions from Masker (Unfollow's new collaboration with Benoît Pioulard), Chicago heartthrob Beau Wanzer, Raster Noton alumnus Mitchell Akiyama, house-noir from Myster Eez, and a crushing track from Beppu.

the concept is pretentious and tenuous, and associates the album with a figure who undermines its message. In its attempt to legitimize itself with a literary classic, In Death's Dream Kingdom forgets something important. This is dark music for dark times, sure, but the music can speak for itself, and in a much more intuitive language. roel funcken
