Listen to Ikonika's New Album for Hyperdub
- Words: Tim Gentles
Next week, UK DJ/producer Ikonika (a.k.a. Sara Abdel-Hamid) will drop her second album, Aerotropolis, via Hyperdub, but has now made the LP available to stream in full before its release. Arriving three years after Ikonika's acclaimed 2010 debut, Contact, Love, Want, Have, the 14-track Aerotropolis continues with the artist's distinctive melding of post-dubstep tropes with a technicolor sound palette and clear pop sensibility. As Abdel-Hamid herself notes of the album, "I tried to engulf everything after dubstep, and made a decision to go for style—my style—and progress in that way." While we wait for Aerotropolis to arrive on July 29, its music can be streamed via the widget below. (via The Guardian)
