Gaika - Drift
Brixton-born artist, rapper and producer GAIKA is due to release his forthcoming album Drift – the most stylistically accurate representation of his personal tastes to date – on Big Dada on 8th September 2023.
'Drift' is non-conforming and genre blending. Whilst hard to neatly fit in a box, the record feels like an avant garde blend of Electronic, Hip-Hop, Punk and Grunge music featuring soundscapes recorded from GAIKA's travels abroad. Shapeshifting and cinematic in style, GAIKA draws inspiration from musical greats; Prince, Wu Tang Clan, Massive Attack, and John Coltrane, with his approach akin to the Pink Siifus, A$AP Rockys, and Dean Blunts of this world.
The album's lead single is 'LADY', featuring bbymutha.
GAIKA’s sound spans from grime, dancehall, R&B, electronic, and beyond, often weaving in political commentary through his lyricism. New album Drift is an ensemble record with GAIKA as the central writer working with collaborators BbyMutha, KIDÄ, Azekel, Charlie Stacey, Chamber 45, Brbko, The Narrator (Amber Joy), SAMANTHA, and more.
Recommended if you like...Massive Attack, A$AP Rocky, Young Fathers, Yves Tumor, Dean Blunt, Roots Manuva.
Format: 2LP: 2x 140g red colour vinyl. Artwork and layout by GAIKA. 12x12 insert. Download code included.
GAIKA is an active presence in the art scene. Previous projects and residencies have included Future Shock at 180 the Strand, Now Gallery, and the ICA, to name a few. His newest ventures will take place at Southbank and Hayward Gallery.
