Watch Ikonika Build a Beat in 10 Minutes
- Words: Glenn Jackson
London producer and longtime Hyperdub affiliate Ikonika has taken the Against the Clock challenge, using Logic and a few pieces of hardware to craft a track in just 10 minutes. Appearing on FACT TV, Ikonika's attempt at the production feat finds her crafting a synth-heavy slice of funky electro, which utilizes a Moog Little Phatty for its main melody and a MiniMoog plug-in for the bass, while the producer's Maschine provides the rhythms.
Ikonika's complete Against the Clock session can be watched below, after which the producer walks viewers through the gear and steps necessary to make her 10-minute track.
