Ikonika returns with the ‘I Make Lists EP’, the first full extended release since her 2010 debut album ‘Contact, Love, Want, Have’ (Hyperdub). Hum + Buzz present 6 incendiary club ready tracks, her most accomplished and anticipated work to date.
Taking a dark approach with ‘I Make Lists’ and ‘Cold Soaking’, these dubplate anthems have been the highlight of recent Ikonika sets. They both fuse paranoid, intense and ominous basslines with sinister and eerie lead synths. ‘Take Pictures’ melds a languid drum machine strut with reflective but focused melodies. The playful side of Ikonika is present in the Latino Freestyle influenced track ‘Catch Vibes’ and ‘With Your Mouth’, a stripped backed procession. These two tracks employ driving drums, acidic basslines and mischievous melodies.
Bringing us to the finale is the majestic ‘PR812’. Referencing the hijacking of a passenger flight in 2000, Ikonika crafts an emotive dance floor anthem with centre stage given to her original approach to melody and arrangement. Support from Mary Anne Hobbs, Jackmaster, Bok Bok, GIRL UNIT, and Eclair Fifi among others.

With his sophomore album ‘Ghost People’ appearing on 2010‘s end of the year charts for the likes of Mixmag (# 6), Clash Magazine (#9), DJ Magazine (#9), Data Transmission (‘Album of the Year’), Martyn returns to Brainfeeder to release a follow-up 12” this March.
The 12” leads with ‘Hello Darkness,’ previously unreleased and exclusive to the 12”, Martyn shuffles through a rhythmic bassline and feeling of, indeed, darkness from the very first beat. In typical Martyn fashion, the track skips its way through genre conventions, landing in a flux between 2-step, driving techno and old rave (the latter specifically heard in his ethereal and scaling upper melodies). ‘Hello Darkness’ could lend itself to the rawest, grittiest warehouse, yet simultaneously breeds a subtle feeling of elation and release, and keeps the listener guessing with a variety of quirky sound collages.

Scandinavia’s favourite vampire, Little Jinder aka Josefine Jinder is no stranger to electronic music, at age 16 she was more inclined to be found in a studio listening to Joy Division and Art of Noise than out partying. Her first live performance was on a Swedish talk show in 2008, and things have sky rocketed since then. Little Jinder signed to New York’s bass label Trouble & Bass and hasn’t looked back. Her debut EP “Polyhedron” was released in 2008; followed by the sultry “Youth Blood”, which gained critical acclaim and was licensed to Ministry of Sound
Little Jinder effortlessly merges haunting, mystical pop songs with disco beats, soaring synths and dubstep tempos, she can easily be considered one of the most exciting artists to come out of Sweden in recent years.
“Youth Blood” was released via T&B in 2009, and due to the success of the record across the sea, was picked up by Ministry of Sound in 2010. In addition to the critically acclaimed Original Mix, were remixes from the likes of Bok Bok, Renaissance Man, 12th Planet & Flinch, Subeena, Tony Senghore & Kavsrave that ensured the “Youth Blood” continued to pulsate through your speakers in 2011.
Jinder is now working on her debut album, and bringing her irresistible stage show to locations worldwide.
