Ikonika-I Make Lists EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 14, 2012 by E.N.

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.
