Emika seems unable to switch off.
The Berlin based producer is almost continually creative, fusing glistening, ultra-modern techno with post-punk spheres.
New album 'DREI' – her fourth in four years – continues her artistic expansion. Emika explains:
“I called it ‘DREI’ because it's all made and conceived in Berlin with no outward facing concepts this time. It's my life as it stands now with my feet on the ground here. ‘DREI’ is ultimately about freedom. Coping with freedom. Limitations vs Freedom. The shock of a miracle. The madness of being alone. Ambitions and insecurities. The perils of a limitless creative mind. And without a doubt, my desire to produce fat hard beats without needing anyone - complete with a fresh sound.”
Ahead of this, Clash is able to premiere the video for 'My Heart Needs Melody'. Both raucously infectious and utterly fragile, you can check it out below.
