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 – 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.
