Scratcha DVA stays on form on his latest EP for Hyperdub. ‘Mad Hatter’ is a 3-track distillation of the vast range of bass-centric styles heard on his radio shows. Support comes from across the board, an anticipations are high for his forthcoming material soon to be announced.
As Emika winds her way around the world busting her hot new show, her 2nd album DVA has just dropped on Ninja Tune and is receiving much praise from fans & critics. Strong songwriting comes to the forefront on the album whilst the live show pushes the bass up high and Emika to the front of the stage to give her audience a real show.
We are now booking autumn touring worldwide.
Love for DVA from UK press ::
“Resting somewhere between Kate Bush, Miss Kitten and Grimes, Emika’s music is a classy treat that deserves wider recognition” Mixmag 8/10
‘The Anglo-Czech singer moves out of the sonic shadows and embraces accessible electro soul. It suits her.’ Sunday Times
‘Naked vocals with swelling grand pianos that clash against the artifical buzz. That strikingly three-dimensional sound is a reminder of what makes Emika such a great producer’ Resident Advisor
“A rare gem indeed.” Metro 4/5
‘The beats, rooted in electro and synth-pop, are a perfect moody accompaniment to Emika’s treated reverb-shrouded vocals’ The Skinny 4/5
Euro Covers ::
Emika will release her 2nd album, DVA, on 10 June 2013 – all info and a FREE download of album track and Chris Isaak cover “Wicked Game” here.
DVA, is a return to the music of her roots, a triumph of keenly felt and brilliantly expressed reflections of oppression and freedom, be it political, sexual or artistic.
DVA is an exploration of self-expression and sound, taking dark dub pop, sound design inspirations and melding them with classical music of her upbringing, taking Emika’s production a giant step forward.
