Biography

Ikonika (real name Sara Abdel-Hamid) is a UK-based electronic musician, producer and DJ often associated with Hyperdub Records and the Dubstep genre.

Her debut 12”, “Please/Simulacrum” was released in 2008 on Hyperdub Records. She has released music on Planet Mu, as well as a remix of DJ Mujava’s “Township Funk”, released by Warp Records. Ikonika’s music combines melodic synth patterns, driving drums, melancholic sub bass and unorthodox song structures. She was described by The Observer as “a rare female face in the male-dominated world of dubstep, Ikonika melds the genre’s juddering bass with Aphex Twin-style melodic mischief-making.”

Her debut album, Contact, Love, Want, Have was released on Hyperdub on 6 April 2010.

    I like how you don't see a lot of girls in this particular genre of music, and then she just goes in there and does something that isn't cheesy, cliché or otherwise worn out. Good for her and good for us!

    Haha, I agree with @darkhitech but for God's sake can we leave FL Studio out of this, please? :D It's a good piece of software. Ikonika's track sounded great on Azealia's mixtape.... I think she needs to find more MCs to work with because I'm guessing that in general her stuff would work better as backing tracks than stand-alone instrumentals

    I gotta be honest, there's no single track from her that I really like. Sounds just too random, nothing special. Like someone tries to learn Fruity Loops or something. Maybe this just isn't for me.
