Mix Of The Day: Emika - Candelight 020 (16th Aug 11)

Today we feature a mix from our friends over at the Candlelight Sessions. The London based blog has been building up a great list of some of dance music's most respected artists including DJ Rolando, Hans Bouffhmyre, Monoloc and more.

For their 20th episode they've roped in the services of a very talented lady, Emika. Born in the UK, to Czech heritage. Trained in classical piano and composition as a youngster, she was an integral part in the rise of the Bristol dubstep scene. Now based in Berlin, her excellent ear for sound landed her a job with Native Instruments as a sound designer.

Her most notable work to date was the spearhead for Berghain's Fünf compilation. Emika compiled a series of field recordings from the Berlin club and turned them into a 4gb soundbank which became part / all of the tracks on the album, including one of her own.

As a producer Emika has released on UK imprint Ninja Tune and Berghain's label, Ostgut Ton, we expect plenty more great things to come...


1) Nina Kraviz - I'm Weak
2) Emika - Professional Loving (DJ Rashad & DJ BMT Remix)
3) Photek - Sleepwalking (Faulty DL Remix)
4) Zomby - Mush
