With a background in classical piano and composition, Emika brings a fresh new voice to the ever-evolving world of electronic music. Mixing dark textures with articulate vocals, her recent releases on Ninja Tune have been causing a real stir. Having lived through the formative years of the recent global explosion in bass music coming out of Bristol, she now lives in Berlin, but is delving deeper and deeper into her Czech heritage.
She describes herself as “making pop, but with a hard edge, playing different sounds and intensities against each other. I try to stay on the fence, leaving from for the listener to create a sense of what its about. It’s all about tension for me.”
Emika’s debut album was released on Ninja Tune in October 2011. Singles “Double Edge” and “Drop The Other” instantly seep into your subconscious. The singles ’3 Hours’, a collaboration with Jimmy Edgar, and ‘Chemical Fever’ followed in 2012. The second album DVA will be released on June 10th 2013 by Ninja Tune.
