8/10 Ant Staff review, 01 February 2008
To assist my speedy recovery from THAT audio disaster, i've the first 12" from Ikonika on Hyperdub. Apparently a lady, she supplies some atmospheric bleep-step beats that take you on a subtle journey. 'Please' is a sleek, woozy affair that would work as a downtempo opener in a techno set with some mild industrial clanging & a sweet, understated bassline. Ant thinks it sounds like an 8 bit computer game with a pixelated bird shitting little death biscuits onto Super Mario's head. The flip is 'Simulacrum', another bleepy bugger of a tune with a swaggering, stuttering bassline staggering into LFO's kitchen and stealing all the knives. If it wasn't so grooving & graceful it would be Mr. Stabby on crack. Ant says it reminds him of Ital Rockers, a major influence on the early Warp sound, utilising dub textures with an earthy techno sensibility. Well he said a bit of that, the un-knobby bit. Quite a departure for Hyperdub is this, but folks wanting movement in the scene will appreciate this breezy, fresh affair. 12" wax plate only.
