Bewitching, atmospheric melodies and glitchy electronic beats make up the music of electronic artist Emika. After growing up in Bristol, U.K. and receiving a Music Technology degree in Bath, she procured an internship at the offices of the London label Ninja Tune, where she worked for a month. She then traveled to Berlin, where she started working as a sound designer for Native Instruments. In her downtime, she began honing her own uniquely haunting musical style with her laptop, picking up ideas along the way from the dance scene at the notorious Berghain/Panoramabar club. The clientele at Ninja Tune, who had previously been uninterested in her rough demos, appreciated her new, dark, downtempo/dubstep direction. They released Emika's single “Drop the Other” on their 20th anniversary box set, and then released her self-titled debut in October of 2011. ~ Jason Lymangrover
