Cykada is an energetic bomb of unique style. It engages distant poles, analog worlds crashing with electronics, eastern influences crossing with western, harmonising nostalgic moments with dancefloor bangers. It seems that Western Africa is just bordering with Eastern Europe, where Turkish music high fives Flamenco and all of this is wrapped up with the fundamentals of the London club scene. There are so many inspirations that it may seem impossible to unite them, however they make it happen, creating layers of devastation, beauty and intrigue.
40 minutes of music built as 5 compositions, where recorded in December 2017 in the Total Refreshment Centre. We are proud that Cykada’s debut album is now an addition to the Astigmatic Record’s catalogue.
