Emika – ‘Drop The Other’

Dubsteppy pop (but definitely, definitely not popstep because that is not becoming a thing, okay?) from Germany’s Emika.

Almost-frozen, brittle, mumble-sung vocals with gentle but bass-forward beats and a video that can only be what a robot with a 1970s television for a head sees the precise moment he realizes he needs glasses.

Bet Ninja Tune are going for a ‘female James Blake’ win here. And if they’re not, they should.
