A night by boundary-pushing record label Hyperdub, featuring live performances from Ikonika, Nazar and Proc Fiskal.
Founded by Steve Goodman (aka Kode9) in 2004, Hyperdub is one of the most important platforms for the UK underground dance scene. The independent label is not only noted for its influential releases across experimental electronic music, but also in promoting live events and fostering new talent.
Ikonika presents her debut UK live show, featuring tracks from 2022’s Bubble Up EP, in which she uses her own vocals for the first time. The EP draws from amapiano and deep house, exploring the more pop-leaning elements of her sound that she describes as ‘queer love anthems for the dancefloor’.
Nazar delves into a set of what he terms rough kuduro, a sound defined by his 2020 EP Guerrilla, in which the electronic musician explores his familial connection to the Angolan civil war. Examining and digitising collective memory, Nazar threads together oral histories and political realities.
Mixing UK club sounds with phone recordings, sound collage and vocal manipulation, Proc Fiskal brings a high-pressure bass set rooted in genre defiance and high energy futurism.
Inviting this seminal label to take over the ICA’s Theatre is a chance to consider the ways in which temporary and long-term communities are formed through sound, by bringing together artists and audiences interested in experimental practices.
