EmikaFrom: Berlin via Bristol

Members: Emika

Background: Berlin has provided suitable ground for the Ninja Tune signed Emika. Born of Czech heritage, the German based producer found her signature after developing her previously rejected sound on the German underground electro scene.  Now she’s taking that scene by storm.

Her sound is just frightening. It’s a sound that could have only come out of the underground and a far cry from her classical piano training. ‘Count Backwards’ is a haunting mix of unnatural glitches and ghoulish countdowns whilst ‘Pretend’ is a frantic mash of unnatural swells and swirls. She was also rooted firmly in Bristol during Dubstep’s birth. ‘Drop the Earth’ and ‘Double Edge’ both project the menacing soul and terrifying bass that Katy B lacks. Her voice is just as visceral. It’s as seductive and alluring as Portishead’s Beth Gibbons and fits perfectly amongst Emika’s minimalist electro. 

Emika’s debut album is released on 3rd October.
