Hyperdub’s first lady Ikonika goes against the clock for the ongoing FACT mag series, making a solid beat in a mere ten minutes. She also wins the prize for best intro in the series…
Ikonika will release new EPs on both Hyperdub and Night Slugs this summer.
Ikonika is one of the outstanding producers of her generation. Her 2008 debut ‘Please’ via Hyperdub, announced a forward thinking, highly melodic, twisted take on UK underground dance music. After further singles for Planet Mu and Hyperdub, she went on to release one of the best albums of 2010 in the form of ‘Contact, Love, Want, Have’, receiving glowing reviews. Her remix projects have included Interpol, Caribou, Cubic Zirconia and DJ Mujava.
This year she will be releasing her new album via Hyperdub, showcasing her new evolved sound with house and techno influences.
