TUNE :PAPERCUTZ - Rivers (Ikonika Remix)
Ikonika (real name Sara Abdel-Hamid) is an electronic musician, producer and DJ who has released records for Hyperdub Records and Planet Mu. Ikonika’s music combines melodic synth patterns, driving drums, melancholic sub bass and unorthodox song structures.
Her latest E.P. "I Make Lists" for Hum + Buzz (a label she co-runs, releasing records by New York-via-Chicago's Brenmar and Sydney's Dro Carey) is an up front, dancefloor driven EP which retains her love affair with bass whilst also throwing out hints of classic Rave.
"Ikonika is swiftly becoming an icon in her own right." The Guardian
“She really is a goddess in my world...” Mary Anne Hobbs
"Ikonika is still a dazzling synth technician. Dubstep or otherwise." Dummy Mag
"A genuine big deal." XLR8R
"Stellar vision of what her sound is and how her synths should sing..." Pitchfork
