Sometimes the name of the artist just says it all. Ikonika is truly an icon for forward-thinking UK bass music and beyond. She may have taken enormous strides from her debut on Kode 9’s ridiculously influential Hyperdub in 2008 to her third album on the same label a couple of years ago, but there’s just something universally refreshing in Ikonika’s sound that makes her stand out regardless of time and place. Ikonika moves effortlessly from sweaty r’n’b and footwork-influences to beautifully frosty synth arpeggios, adjusting colour, brightness and and contrast on her way. The world is hers and now she’s here.
