Emika: DVA

Ninja Tune announced this week Emika's new album [ZEN199]. June 10th 2013 is the date and the formats will be LP, CD and digital.

The 16 track album can already be previewed on the label's site, and I'm sure fans will be delighted and impatient after visiting it. It appears to me as a more serious and mature sound and, by injecting her usual high bass dose (which never ends on an overdose) Emika shows us again her total control on sounds, mixing at her will synthetic and organic resources to captive listeners on every track.

There's also a free track available to download on the album micro-site (after a quick sign-up)...

One on the top of my to-attend-before-is-too-late shows list!!!

" Emika's forthcoming sophomore album, Dva, is a return to the music of her roots, a triumph of keenly felt and brilliantly expressed reflections of oppression and freedom, be it political, sexual or artistic. Dva is an exploration of self-expression and sound, taking dark dub pop, sound design inspirations and melding them with classical music of her upbringing, taking Emika's production a giant step forward.
