Ikonika began drumming in metal and hardcore bands when she was 11 yet at the same time keeping a love of hip-hop, r`n`b and garage, a strange fusion you can hear in her idiosyncratic, off-beat productions with its unpredictable rhythms and free flowing composition. She started producing hip hop originally but then started making dubstep in 2006, after hearing a dubstep epiphany Skream`s Midnight Request Line. Ikonika began to cause a stir on the dubstep scene in late 2007 with her offbeat bleepy off-kilter track Please, her first release on Hyperdub. This was followed by an ode to her cat called Millie, again on Hyperdub, backed by a track called Direct. Recently Warp records  asked her to remix the global underground hit- DJ Mujava`s  Township Funk for them. In between a busy schedule as an in-demand DJ, she`s working on her debut album for Hyperdub, to be released later this year.
