Emika, Artist, Producer, DJ, Label Owner

Producer Emika is an Anglo-Czech talent who was classically trained in her youth, later discovering the limitless world of electronic composition that would provide the yin to her formative yang.

Her relationship with Ninja Tune saw her support the legendary Amon Tobin across North America on his ISAM tour, and she has since taken her mesmeric live show and DJ sets across the world - performing throughout Europe and in Russia and China. She also performed a live set for Boiler Room Berlin in 2012.

Emika has worked on many collaborative projects aside from her resolutely personal solo material - including alongside Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble, Marcel Dettmann, Pinch, Jimmy Edgar, Tommy Four Seven and MyMy. She was responsible for gathering the field recordings of the sounds of Berghain for their Fünf compilation and created a track for the collection herself. She has also recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Czech soprano Michaela Soprano, and has been shot by photographers including Bettina Rheims and Madison.

She launched Emika Records in 2014 in search of freedom and independence, an experience which inspired the imprint's third release: DREI, a full-length album by Emika.
