Beatmaker, MC and artist Gaika was born and raised in Brixton. His singular, confrontational performance style reflects influences such as Basquiat, Tricky and The Weeknd. His recent debut mixtape and video were instantly picked up by the music press. ‘A warped, electronic blend of grime, dance hall, garage, hip hop and R&B, Gaika takes the sonic textures of the streets and crafts them into brand new, glistening shapes. You can feel it – the hyper-real sound of South London being transformed into something alien-like and digital, and in turn, utterly unique’ (Dazed Digital).
