- EMIKAIZED MIX 002
A kaleidoscopic mix put together for Clash Magazine:
Continually pushing ahead, the producer recently pieced together a mix for Clash to demonstrate where her head is at. Frequently collaborating with The Bomb Squad producer Hank Shocklee, Emika has also completed a salute to David Bowie – in the form of a neat deconstruction of ‘Let’s Dance’.
All pieced together with a rare sense of exactness and detail, this is a fascinating catch up.
In addition to her live performance sets, we’re excited to announce that Berlin-based songwriter/producer Emika is now taking selected DJ bookings. Audiences can expect a sultry blend of bass electro, techno, melodic house and her signature ‘emotional dance music’ style that fans have grown to love in her own productions.
Seductive and seriously banging beats to make the dancefloor move into all hours of the night.
For further info please contact Ned.

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

‘Sing to me’ is taken from Emika’s forthcoming album Dva. It is one of the most club friendly songs of the album that will certainly dive into dance floor territories. Panoramic vocals swing beautifully together with the thunderous bass line, while the fast paced piano samples drive the song all the way through.
With her stunning 2nd album out on June 10th, and a run of album shows through June/July, we are now turning our attention to plans for autumn. Emika is now booking the all new, version 2 of her full live show. The show adapts to different contexts, from smaller sweaty clubs to big festival stages, Emika is ready for it all.
Searching new video is also taken from Emika’s new album Dva.
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.
