Ikonika

Ikonika is an artist I am paying close attention to this year. 


As a creator of dubstep, experimental garage beats, and as she proclaims - 130-140bpm mutations; Ikonika has got me itching to hear her debut album released on UK label Hyperdub 6th April 2010. The only taster is a cheeky, amazingly sublime track called The Idiot:


I'll leave it to the critics to big her up and paint word pictures:

DJ Mag:
"If Bjork made dubstep instrumentals, this is what might come out" 

The Guardian:
"Ikonika melds the genre's juddering bass with Aphex Twin-style melodic mischief" 

NME: 
"Another extraordinary Hyperdub artist is Ikonika" 

Pitchfork: 
"A production style that seems to be approaching synth melodies in an original way" 

Ikonika live in the mix says it all:
