Born out of his travels through the many global currents of contemporary London, GAIKA’s music is dark yet melodic, experimental yet catchy. While drawing strongly from his Brixton upbringing and his Jamaican and Grenadian heritage, GAIKA’s sound is ultimately expansive, seamlessly weaving musical motifs, vocal flows and slangs of UK, US and Caribbean music.
As both a vocalist and producer, GAIKA is as uncompromising in his politics as his sonics, intent on expanding and exploding the ideas of what contemporary black british music is. From his debut mixtape Machine in 2015 all the way to his Warp Records release Spaghetto, GAIKA is channeling the unique synthesis of the UK’s musical make-up, firmly at the forefront of a new London.
“Hear about London right now, and it probably sounds a bit bleak; the mass closure of much-loved venues, house prices that only the rich can afford, rising racial tensions and increasingly no help for the down-trodden. However, scratch away its surface, and the deep, dark, anonymous city remains brimming with fearless art, just as it always has done – a testament to what can bleed from a gaping wound.”
Representative of young, ambitious dub / chill / goa / ethno scene in eastern Poland. Renowned for his collaborations with Miss God, Królewski Sound or Metro club, he co-created the Tribalanga Festival. You can see in the chillout scenes of psychill, techno or goa all over Poland. So far, he has visited most of the best Polish clubs, spreading his musical world. Since his childhood MIFI has been into roots music which is the backbone of his musical search. It is interesting how in his sets he presents Jamaican sounds in a modern way. Subtly combining organic music with synthetic ambient, dub-techno, he sometimes manoeuvres on the edge of glitch or idm. Taking British techno of the late 80s, jungle, detroit or modern ambient, he can build a space that cleverly creates exotic roots atmosphere. This is not in any way disturbing, but on the contrary – there is no monotony in his sets, and in order to understand it, you have to hear it.
