Ikonika – Bodies (Remixes)


DBA045X, 05/03/2021

Ikonika’s boundary crushing Bodies EP gets the remix treatment a year after hitting the shelves. First up Sara delivers a storming VIP of What Kinda Pain Are We Talking About?, instant reload. One of those versions that just smacks from start to end. Huge.

Second up is my favourite producer and DJ that I discovered in lockdown, Sumgii. The Swamp81 affiliate and Illaman producer has been on fire lately. He’s the only DJ whose streams I have checked for during lockdown, a real London selector from North West who just delivers in spades on everything he touches. Badman.

It’s a real pleasure to welcome quest?onmarq to the label with their remix of Nobody which nails that Jersey club /ballroom sound at the very moment of it’s intersection with techno. The minimalist style and use of negative space are expertly deployed by a producer whom we are very proud to work with for the first time.

And finally myself and Iona were very lucky that Sara gave us the keys to Your Body for one of our Midnight Snacc remixes. We did our best to bring the Snacc sound to the track replete with our trademark 91-92 era hardcore inspired breakbeats and dubby trimmings. We really hope you enjoy this one, thanks Sara for giving us the opportunity!

Maximum boost to everyone supporting the label and our releases in this weird ass year, DBA forever! (Semtek, 2021)
