A1. Position A2. Praxis B1. Strawberry Underlay B2. Wakeup Sequence Ikonika is in straight up banger mode on this EP, possibly her finest release to date. Confident, energetic and tough, these tracks are made from solid tour experience and made for big room dancing. The EP is made with an almost 3D sense of contrast, and a brilliant ability to balance dusty old school sounds and shinier new ones and reshape them into something that sounds really fresh. ‘Position’ kicks things off with rough kicks and snares that sound like they've been created in a foundry, mixed into rolling kicks lifted from a crumbling drum machine and vocals sliced and diced into sharp hallucinatory rhythms. ‘Praxis’ sounds like a track that could have come from her groundbreaking ‘Contact, Want, Love, Have’ debut album, except the straightforward melodies with droning synths and steamy drums over growling bass give the track a confident upgrade. ‘Strawberry Underlay’ builds melody lines over a single basic, repeating riff in quick succession while a series of interchangeable, tight old school drum patterns stop and start underneath in quick succession. It's a brilliant exercise in dynamics and tension. ‘Wakeup Sequence’ sounds like freestyle pop driven into strange Atari game shapes, bubbling arpeggios, rough, funky melodies, ancient drum machines, and distorted guitar synth and weird squeaks.
