Gaika Announces New EP ‘Seguridad’
British producer Gaika will release his new EP ‘Seguridad’ this Friday.
Since the release of his debut mixtape Machine in 2015, critics have struggled to label his music and art. His dark, yet magnetic sound evolved through his following releases, including the 2018 EP The Spectacular Empire on Warp Records.
GAIKA shape-shifts across genres, but has settled on the term ‘ghetto-futurism’ to encompass what he does, deeming it easier than waiting for the latest “dancehall-meets-rave” label and allowing him to build on afro-futurism to make art steeped in blackness that “harks back.”
‘Seguridad’ is Gaika’s upcoming EP, created whilst on tour in Puerto Escondido, will be released via Mexican label NAAFI. The EP features productions from several NAAFI family members in the likes of Lao, Zutzut, TAYHANA, Wasted Fates, OMAAR and Lechuga Zafiro. ‘Seguridad’ is a fusion of Dancehall, Trap, Grime and deconstructed club scapes created during a tour of Mexico.
