International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

One of the first ladies of dubstep, Ikonika (aka Sarah Abdel-Hamid) emerged on Kode9’s famed Hyperdub label in 2008, just as the imprint known for putting Burial on the map was taking a drastic left turn away from dubstep proper and into funkier, synthier offshoots. Alongside producers like Zomby, Joker, Darkstar and others, Ikonika is part of the second generation of dubsteppers, acts not as concerned with the alienated, atmospheric embalm of the genre’s dark pedigree. Instead, Ikonika’s bass wonkiness and Casio tones flirt with the lightness of UK garage and with elements of electro. This year, the West London producer arrives at MUTEK as a DJ, in support of her debut album, “Contact, Love, Want, Have”, an instrumental affair that Pitchfork’s Martin Clark has called “utterly coherent and single-minded”.
