Against the Clock: Ikonika
In the latest episode, we set the challenge to Ikonika. A steady stream of music since 2008 has made Ikonika one of UK dance music’s most interesting acts – equally influenced by Streets of Rage and Rich Harrison, and peppering club forms from electronica to techno with her trademark synthlines and drum fills. She’s released two albums, 2010’s Contact Want Love Have and 2013’s Aerotropolis, and this year will be celebrating the 10th birthday of her regular label Hyperdub.
She also wins the prize for best Against the Clock intro.
