Bodies EP
Bodies EP (12")
Cat: DBA 045. Rel: 02 Jul 20
Bass
  1. Your Body (6:07)
  2. Nobody (4:50)
  3. What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About? (5:03)
  4. Bodied (Roller edit) (5:04)
Review: Since she last released some original music, Ikonika has been through a lot, including - in her own words - "pregnancy, depression and therapy". It's undoubtedly great to have her back in business, not least because "Bodies" offers a reminder of her undoubted musical talents. She begins with the spacey, bass-heavy slipped electro attractiveness of "Your Body", before opting for even bolder bass, more futuristic electronic motifs and broken beats on the arguably even better "Nobody". Turn to the flipside for the punchy, machine-gun breaks, drowsy chords and warped analogue riffs of "What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About", as well as the snappy, all-action electro/breakbeat fusion of ghostly and intergalactic closing cut "Bodied (Roller Mix)", the EP's most sweaty and percussive moment.

  14. Zen Sizzle
Review: The title for West London producer Ikonika's second album Aerotropolis supposedly refers to a city centred around an airport, and was apparently chosen because the album is "about height, getting high and become distant". It supposedly underwent more significant polish than her previous productions and it shows; lead single "Beach Mode" sounds like a classic '80s house track, while "Mr Cake" glimmers with all the sheen of classic US boogie and the shimmering arp of "Eternal Mode" shows hints of disco in its DNA. But Ikonika's connection to the darker strains of UK dance music still shine through; the thick bass and syncopated rhythms of "Manchego" are pure grime while the monolithic "Mega Church" sounds like futuristic, high concept dubstep. Incredible stuff.

Decadubs 4 EP
  1. Kode9 - "Pink Sham Pain Down The Drain"
  2. The Bug - "Siren"
  3. Dean Blunt - "Urban"
  4. Cooly G - "Mind"
  5. Inga Copeland - "I Am Your Ambient Wife"
  6. Lee Gamble - "DSM"
  7. Fatima Al Qadiri - "Shanxi"
  8. Ikonika - "Time/Speed"
  9. DJ Earl - "Hexagonic Sound"
  10. DVA - "Reach The Devil"
  11. Jeremy Greenspoon & Borys - "Gage"
Review: Take a look at the artists to grace the A-side of Decadubs 4 and you'll find a collection of names that have released some of this year's most talked about albums: Lee Gamble, Inga Copeland, The Bug and Fatima Al Qadiri. The B-side, however, hosts Hyperdub regulars like Ikonika and DVA, and the boss Kode9 of course, to more intriguing names like footworker DJ Earl and Jeremy Greenspoon & Borys who have previously released music on Dan Snaith's Jiaolong label. Dean Blunt also appears with a jazzy ambient cut, while Cooly G does the same with the sombre, vocal-driven "Mind".
