Lots of sudden news on the Ikonika front today. For starters, she finally confirmed a brief North American run, including the following stops:
5/30 New York, NY – Element
6/2 West Hollywood, CA – The Roxy Theatre
6/3 San Francisco, CA – Paradise Lounge
6/4 Montreal, Canada – Mutek
While we’re beyond psyched about New York’s Dark Disco party on Sunday, Ikonika’s L.A. gig is free (click here to RSVP) and also features Actress, the producer of our favorite electronic album in forever, Splazsh. It’s available through Damon Albarn’s Honest Jons imprint on June 8, but a digital version will be available early through Amazon starting tomorrow.
But enough about Actress. This post is about Ikonika, and how essential her next Hyperdub single is. A collection of club edits, it ups the BPM rates of such standout Contact, Have, Love, Want songs as “Psoriasis” and “Video Delays.” The complete tracklisting is below, and while we can’t share any songs with you just yet, the British producer uploaded six cuts to her Soundcloud account today. Crank them up by clicking here.
A1: Video Delays Edit
