Premiere: Ikonika - Rinse promo mix

London producer Ikonika‎ descended onto Kode9’s Hyperdub with a slew of 12“s between 2008 – 2010, followed by her debut full-length album, ‘Contact, Love, Want, Have’, in which vivid, colourful and expressionist synth compositions impressed and floored us. She then went onto establish Hum + Buzz (co-founded by Optimum), unleashing their own material as well as records by NYC-based R&Bro Brenmar and Sydney’s bass/techno producer Dro Carey.

Production aside, we’ve always loved Ikonika for her upfront, on-point selection of music in her DJ sets. This mix, available for stream below, does not disappoint either. Having crafted up a quick mix ahead of Kode9’s Rinse:22 launch party this weekend (which promises her special appearance along with six others on the Hyperdub roster), she delivers a snapshot of her energy-injected, fun-loving performances. No tracklist has been provided but we identified that it features Kode9’s latest offering Uh, due out in early June via Rinse Recordings.

Ikonika will play at Kode9’s Rinse:22 launch party on Friday 24th May, 2013. Further information here.
