cktrl explores “contemporary-classical music from the Black perspective” on robyn





Featuring cameos from Duval Timothy, Shirley Tetteh, Coby Sey, and Purple Ferdinand.

London artist cktrl is releasing a new EP called robyn, via Touching Bass this November.

Described as an “exploration of contemporary-classical from the Black perspective,” the EP’s 6 tracks chart a journey from heartbreak and loss to strength and optimism.

cktrl wrote and performed the tracks himself, working with Duval Timothy on piano, Coby Sey on bass guitar, and Purple Ferdinand on backing vocals.

It follows Touching Bass’ release of Demae’s Life Works Out… Usuallyone of our favourite albums in September.
