With her brilliant debut release 'Please', Ikonika firmly established her place in the dubstep landscape. Her unique sound continued to progress with further releases on Hyperdub and Planet Mu, as well as a stunning remix of DJ Mujava's 'Township Funk' (Warp). Ikonika's music combines melodic synth patterns, driving drums, melancholic sub bass and unorthodox song structures, simultaneously heartfelt and heavy. Her tracks have been supported by everyone from Kode9, Martyn and Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1) to Rob Da Bank (BBC Radio 1) and Flying Lotus. As an in demand DJ, her sets showcase the constantly mutating underground sounds of the UK, spanning from the freshest Dubstep and Funky dubplates to the classic foundations of House and Garage. With her debut album due for release on Hyperdub in early 2010, a raft of remixes and a busy DJ schedule, Ikonika is certain to fulfil her potential as one the UK's brightest stars.

what's your setup like?
Motu Ultralite MK3
Yamaha HS50M Monitors
Moog Little Phatty II
Quite simple really, I'm not really a gear freak. I just like to exhaust everything I've got. But the above set up is still brand new to me…I used only FL 6 plugged into my Numark mixer then out my Yamahas up until the end of last year.
I see your still stuck on that question for Red Bull? lolbraiden wrote:If you could play on the international space station, what would be your message to Earth?
I've been producing for about 4 years. I started sending demos out in 2007, no label apart from Hyperdub responded. I sent Kode9 a copy of 'Please' and he gave me some great feedback on how to improve it and such. I went back and finished it, then he started playing it out and it was getting the right reactions so I just asked if he wanted to release it and he said yeah.polygonfiction wrote:Hi Ikonika,

How do you feel about being one of the few females in the largely male dubstep scene? Do you feel like you get treated differently?
Also, what are you favorite records of the year?...besides "Love Vs. Money"
my comment was a sarcastic one aimed at the people that keep bringing the fact that ikonika happens to be female when discussing her music
