London-based DJ/producer Ikonika (a.k.a. Sara Abdel-Hamid) released her sophomore album, Aerotropolis, at the end of last month via Hyperdub, and now, the shapeshifting artist has delivered a mix for Self-Titled that pays tribute to one of her album's big influences: freestyle. On the genre and its influence on Aerotropolis, Abdel-Hamid says, "The last album was very much about my UK garage roots and video games; this album started off with a trigger and I ended up fantasizing about being a freestyle producer." Ikonika's "Animatronik Mix" can be streamed below, and an in-depth interview with Adbel-Hamid can be found over on Self-Titled, here.
