LDN DC presents Hum + Buzz: Ikonika 'I Make Lists' EP Launch Party
Ikonika (2hr set)
Timothy J. Fairplay
Ikonika’s unique synth driven productions and razor sharp dj sets have established her as one of the major talents in the UK’s electronic music scene.
Following her debut album for Hyperdub, she set up the Hum + Buzz imprint with like minded dj/producer Optimum (Night Slugs/Planet Mu), overseeing excellent releases from the likes of Brenmar and Dro Carey. The label’s next release comes from Ikonika herself, and to mark this the Hum + Buzz duo are throwing their first club night, playing alongside a specially selected line up of DJs.
Anyone who has seen Mr Beatnick play live or listened to his NTS show will know that he is a man of eclectic and impeccable taste. Production wise he specialises in deep, soulful house affairs such as Sun Goddess and Synthetes, which are gaining him the attention he richly deserves.
Also channelling house, albeit from a darker and harder angle, is Alex D££mnds, whose debut release, Credentials, found its way onto Martyn’s Radio 1 Essential Mix earlier this year.
Finally, former Battant member and Weatherall collaborator Timothy J. Fairplay will be bringing his special brand of analogue jams to the mix after recent releases for World Unknown, Astro Lab and Bird Scarer. Support on the night comes from the LDN DC residents DRX, Tramshed and Valdar.
