New Signings for 2015
These are the Berlin based vocalist and producer Emika, one of the best rappers in the UK - Nolay plus Swedish Dj, producer and Label owner - La Fleur.
Emika has been one of the key voices of the modern electronic scene since 2009.Her debut single was for Will Saul’s Aus label and was the starting point on a journey that has led to her working with the likes of Pinch, Jimmy Edgar and Hank Shocklee (Public Enemy). Over the years she has fused her classical training and love for all types of modern music not only to develop her vocal style but also empower her as producer leading to her producing her sophomore release DVA.
Since parting ways with Ninja Tune she has embarked on a journey as an independent label owner inspired by the support of her amazing cross section of fans. Launching Emika Records
last year with her first single Melancholia Euphoria, Beatport
recently listed Emika Records as one to watch for 2015 and with a new album on the verge of release it sure is.
Nolay aka Bella Gotti
, has been at the forefront of grime since the early Noughties. Coming from a Hip-Hop and D&B background she has developed her writing through working with DJ Zinc, Tricky and High Contrast, plus acting in the cult TV Show Top Boy. The last year has seen her develop her career further with international tours and recently performing with Kate Tempest plus loads of BBC Radio support for her recent mixtape Holy Sinners
, it’s a pleasure to have her on board and we are looking forward to working with her.
Finally we have started working with La Fleur’s Power Plant Records
and Publishing, who last year was one of the faces at the ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) festival. Over the last 6 years her career has gone from Club DJ to Radio Host to Producer and Label manager. Her latest release for German Tech house label featured a Carl Craig remix and has proved to be another step in her already gleaming story.
