KHIVA’s six-track ‘Phantom Forces’ EP provides haunting look into her signature sound
KHIVA‘s one-of-a-kind sound has made her one of electronic music’s most potent and promising stars. The multifaceted bass music producer/rapper constantly generates waves of hype with her original productions and compelling live vocal performances. KHIVA’s latest EP release, Phantom Forces, showcases her propensity toward emotionally fueled, bass-driven production, vocals, and songwriting.
Low-frequency soundscapes, fierce beats, and a contrasting ethereal nature provide a blueprint for KHIVA. She brings these elements to her six-tracker, Phantom Forces, as she paints a vivid dreamscape through metaphorical lyrical stylings. Whether it’s the haunting vocals lacing “Poetic Violence” or the sultry rap verses on “Misplaced Apathy,” all the way up to her eerie melodies on closer “Sign,” the entire EP stands up as a clear manifesto on the signature KHIVA vibe.
Hailing from Nova Scotia originally, the Canadian producer was first discovered by TRUTH, who hosted her first EP, In The Quiet, on their imprint, Deep Dark & Dangerous, in 2017. Since then, KHIVA has evolved from a 140 dubstep producer into something much more — unveiling a penchant for infusing her own vocals, often rapping. Since the release of her debut EP, KHIVA’s connected with the masses via festivals such as Electric Forest, Shambhala, Okeechobee, Lightning in a Bottle, and Outlook in Croatia, while headlining her own club dates across North America.
KHIVA has continued to bend notions of what electronic music is and can be while proving she herself is unboxable, and her latest music showcases the next chapter of her vision. Stream Phantom Forces in full, and also view KIHVA’s remaining 2022 tour dates, below.
