Ikonika - Contact Love Want Have – Number 3 2010

Sara Abdel-Hamid debut as Ikonika is a real beauty of a release. Fully of tight dubstep snap, soring synth lines and killer of kilter riffs. It is rhythmic, focussed, melodic, melancholy, elegiac, euphoric and alive. It is post garage come down mixed with funky beats and a graceful grasp of dynamics that elevates into a different place. The odd twist and turns in the productions make it a disconcerting but beautiful listen.
