Summary

Today's modern day composer can work in many different areas of sound with one click of a mouse. This is the single most influential factor in Emika's artistic development. Thrilled by the means and ways technology offers to shape song writing, she chose a software studio as her instrument throughout her musical education and beyond. While Emika's approach to composition evolved, she worked with Berlin's legendary engineer Rashad Becker to craft the unique sound of her record. Already highly-rated by everyone from Mary-Anne Hobbs to Thom Yorke and covered by media outlets as varied Resident Advisor and The Guardian, the release of this, her eponymous debut album, is awaited with considerable anticipation.

Emika is inspired by the roots techno culture because "it was a movement with sound and dancing at its very core. It was not about idols or stars, it was about sound and people coming together to dance and feel free." She's inspired by dubstep from Bristol and London since 2004 when she lived in these cities because of its meditational bass vibes: "originally it was deep spiritual music made by kids for kids." These two influences twine together with her love of the great universal pop song, her abilities as a song writer, a classically-trained pianist and a singer, to make something completely unique.

Asked to name an inspiration from the past, Emika turns to Delia Derbyshire, the legendary Radiophonic Workshop composer who came up with the original Dr Who theme, "not so much for the sounds she made as rather for her questing spirit, it inspires me as i go ahead mapping my own musical realm"
