Producer & songwriter Emika has a background in classical piano and composition and was a sound designer for Native Instruments, one of the leading music production software companies before she launched her artistic career. Emika brings a fresh style to the ever-evolving world of electronic music, mixing her signature dark textures with beats and vocals, her last two albums Dva [2013, Ninja Tune] and Emika [2011, Ninja Tune] have proven that.
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.”
Having lived through the formative years of the recent global explosion in bass music coming out of Bristol, she now lives in Berlin.
Her next soon to be announced new album will mark the second collaboration between her and Bomb Squad sonic architect Hank Shocklee, who is this time on mixing duties. Look out for Emika’s DJ dates in anticipation of the forthcoming release.
