Following 2015's Milk Empire, a collaboration with California rapper Mr. Yote, Iglooghost (who was only 18 at the time) signed to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label. His first release for the label was the digital EP Chinese Nü Yr, based on a video game-like story about a gelatinous, amorphous worm named Xiāngjiāo.
