We are pleased to present you Edinburgh-based newcomer „Anikonik“ for the ninth episode of our podcast!
Flying the flag high for Scotland, "Anikonik" has been at the forefront pushing the faster side of bass driven music in the north since 2013. Exploring the faster side of music with an undying love for drum and bass, jungle and footwork, "Anikoniks" sets are typically hard, fast paced and experimental - pushing the boundaries of genres is her forte.
Starting out in Dundee, her work as a promoter for Junglism Scotland and as a resident DJ at the notorious Electrikal Sound System has meant she has fast gained her recognition within the underground music scene up north – especially in Edinburgh, where she regularly plays at club nights such as Midnight bass, Sound System Legacies and the Electrikal nights hosted in the Bongo club. "Anikonik" has supported the likes of Goldie, A.M.C, Chase and Status, Current Value, Mefjus and many more. She is a regular within the festival scene, having played the likes of Boomtown, Eden Festival, Kelburn Garden Party, to name a few.
"Anikonik" is not only a DJ and promoter, but a budding producer who was picked as a mentee by RAM Records for the EQ50 mentorship program this year. The dance floor is a sacred space for her, and having the privilege of working with one of the UKs best sound systems means a lot has been learned in terms of music quality and what it is that drives people to dance. This knowledge is currently being applied to her productions, in which she is in no rush to release – until the quality is high and the vibe is absolutely perfect.
For our podcast, "Anikonik" prepared a energetic one hour ride through various styles of dark drum & bass – perfectly showcasing the diversity of her selection.
