Gaika - Basic Volume LP
Gaika presents his debut album, Basic Volume, after captivating listeners with a blistering pair of acclaimed, self-released mixtapes Machine and Security and Warp-released EPs SPAGHETTO and The Spectacular Empire. Now Gaika's darkly magnetic blend of gothic dancehall and industrial electronics has expanded into his most far-reaching work yet. Basic Volume is a sprawling yet cohesive album that devours genres and spits them out, tangled around personal tales of love, loss and rebellion. GAIKA has already bum-rushed the covers of the WIRE magazine and CRACK (alongside compatriot Dean Blunt), as well as being appointed DAZED political editor at large. Expectations are high for the debut from this singular voice.
