Contact, Love, Want, Have by Ikonika
Released: Apr 2010
Label: Hyperdub
Dubstep, future garage, U.K. bass music -- whatever you choose to call this stuff, London's Ikonika (Sara Abdel-Hamid) explores the outer limits of the genre on her debut album, riddling the high end with 8-bit bleeps and daubing on melodies that feel like new wave action painting, dripping and streaking in all directions. But she doesn't ignore dubstep's core principles, either, grounding her tracks in luscious sub-bass frequencies and imbuing them all with 2-step's graceful sense of swing. From the desiring title to its Technicolor fizz, the whole record buzzes with energy and joy.
