After more than ten years, four albums, dozens of EPs, and gigs all over the globe, Ikonika is one of the most respected names in the UK bass diaspora. Best known for her numerous releases on and affiliation with Hyperdub Records – as well as EPs on DBA, Night Slugs and more recently Club Djembe – she is an artist ever in motion, now light years away from the post- dubstep landscape where she first made her name.
While certain aspects of her sound remain consistent – a love of club-friendly rhythms purpose built with digital flair and a strong sense of melody – the diversity of her interests – pop, R&B, bashment – have become even more apparent in recent music. She's now opened up to singing herself on new material she has written, giving her productions a lighter pop feel. This includes the new amapiano-soaked Bubble Up EP, and has led to a new live show which combines singing live with edits of her songs as well as DJing.
