Ikonika the icon. No we’re not overselling it; it’s just what we believe. Mr Cake is yet another myriad of musical treats, concocted in suitably iconic fashion by Ms¬†Sara Abdel-Hamid ‚Äď an artist synonymous with personal understatement and bold musical statements.
Mr Cake is taken from the Ikonika’s second album Aerotropolis, released last month (July 29th) on Hyperdub. The Outrun-meets-Grand-Theft-Auto video is directed and created by regular Hyperdub collaborator¬†Rob Walker. When was the last time you saw a sign to Peckham and palm trees in the same video? We’re betting never.
