Ikonika Idiot

    • Ikonika – Idiot
    • 1. Idiot
    • 2. Idiot (Altered Natives Remix)

    Idiot’ is already something of a hit with those who’ve heard it being played out, combining hard soca drums with lush ecstatic melodic synth harmonies and a driving bass with a strange 8-bit melody that stumbles and trips around the rhythm. It’s completely alien at first, but potent enough to stick in your ears until you might catch yourself humming the refrain when you least expect it. A unique and fantastic combination of compelling contemporary sounds.
    Altered Natives, aka North London producer Danny Native, whose track ‘Rass Out’ was one of 2009’s best, takes over the B-side with a remix that seems to reflect 20 years of British house music back on itself. Just using the bleeps from the original tune, he echoes and morphs his own melody over stepping dubby kicks and snares and a dark, driving bassline.
