GAIKA is vocalist and producer from Brixton, London. With a voice as rough as sandpaper and hooks that will make your mind explor, GAIKA lists garage, grunge, grime, and trip-hop as influences. He's also known for often nods to dance-hall and reggae - so basically, this is some sh*t you've never heard before. He released a 12" vinyl EP titled Spaghetto (Warped Records) in October. We're stoked to welcome GAIKA to the Empty Bottle for the first time, and can't wait to get deep, deep into the abyss with him. Direct support comes from YVES TUMOR, a Tennessee-born arists specializing in ambient and lo-fi club tracks. His recent full-length release, Serpent Music (PAN), is getting all sorts of raves in the experimental lo-fi world. FADER said of the album: "Although YVES TUMOR's arresting new full-length, Serpent Music, was recorded between lots of different cities all over the world, there is an overarching soulfulness to the project"
