Hyperdub Star Ikonika Flexes Her Serotonin-Producing Skills on New Track "Praxis"

photographer Georg Gatsas


The music of London producer Ikonika never fails to give me skin prickles. She slices and dices sound with the sure gaze of a surgeon, constructing tracks that scratch at the serotonin-producing bits of the body and have a deep understanding of the shape-shifting nature of the UK dancefloor. Following 2013's Aerotropolis—Ikonika's second album after her breakthrough debut, Contact, Love, Want, Have, in 2010—she's back with a new EP titled Position, due out August 25th on Hyperdub. "Praxis" finds her in a contemplative zone, its central melody flexing through dappled plains to reach its target: it's subtle but the elevation is very real. Peep her upcoming DJ dates below.

Tour dates:
08.02: DJ Set @ L'Estrany Festival w/ Drums of Death, Illum Sphere, Johannes Volk, Wooky, XTRNGR, Lost Twin + Telenoika (Banyoles, Spain)
08.23: DJ Set @ Tauron Nowa Muzyka (Katowice, Poland)
09.13: DJ Set @ 10 Years of Hyperdub @ Supercrawl w/ DJ Spinn, Kode9, Scratcha DVA, Jessy Lanza + Fourtet (Hamilton, Canada)*
