New Music : Emika

Making it three girls in a row this week, we have Emika. Currently based in Berlin, she has been enjoying some decent airplay on Radio 1 from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and Zane Lowe. "Drop The Other" has an interesting sound that takes dubstep into more experimental areas, slowing down the tempo with lots of strange samples thrown in. The whole track has an eerie atmosphere to it, which is only made worse or better when listened to at night. Emika's vocals are soft and gentle, which coupled with piano notes are completely at odds with the dark and broody environment she sings over. The single is released by Ninja Tune on 18th January, with a full scale album to follow later in the year. We have the Scuba remix for you to check out, which throws in added static, ticking clocks, and all sorts of other random tricks to spook it out even more.
