Emika the Berlin based producer and sound designer will release her much anticipated debut album later this year. First coming to prominence with her dubstep-emo single ‘Drop the Other’, she swiftly followed with two more ‘Count Backwards’ and ‘Double Edge’. In between she also inspired Ostgut Ton‘s five year anniversary compilation Fünf by suggesting that the club ask it’s roster of artists to make tracks from a sound library created from the sounds of the club itself which Emika herself recorded.
Her self titled debut will be released on her home label of Ninja Tune in October, and as well as the aforementioned singles it will also contain the soon to be released double A-side single ‘Pretend/Professional Loving’. Bass, beats and heartache – we are excited for this one.
You can grab a free Kyle Hall remix of the track ‘Pretend’ if you sign up to Emika’s mailing list here.
