Gaika presents his debut album, Basic Volume, after captivating listeners with a blistering pair of acclaimed, self-released mixtapes Machine and Security and Warp-released EPs Spaghetto and The Spectacular Empire.
The fifteen track collection is co-produced by Gaika, with additional production from similarly forward thinking contemporaries, including Sophie, Dutch E Germ, Dre Skull and DADRAS, Aart as well as previous collaborators including Jam City, Nick Leon and Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Endless collaborator Buddy Ross.
Named after his late father’s technology company. Speaking about the album, Gaika says, “Basic Volume is collection of alchemical parables for all the Immigrants who wander the earth in search of themselves”.
Released as CD and 2LP with download.
