Emika makes a mark


EMIKA'S arrival may just be the eureka moment for female-fashioned dubstep.
Because the new EP, Drop The Other, showcases a take on the notoriously male-dominated genre that's as sultry as it is shadowy.
A skittering stop-start piano and beat combo is tacked onto a breathy vocal for the title track, creating a single that sounds as much Tori Amos as Skream.
Alongside this are Scuba's Vulpine Remix, which takes the track down a claustrophobicly-deep route, and a GeRM version which takes a more mainstream, glostick-waving electro route.
Overall it's stunning stuff - my only complaint is that Emika is clearly a prospect, let's have a bit more to get our teeth into next time, eh?
