Distractions distils the character of Ikonika’s music productions across a wider set of styles than previous albums, and she subtly fuses and switches elements from contrasting genres, giving the whole set a uniqueness and consistency that puts it in it’s own lane. Furthermore what sits at the centre of Distractions more than ever is her love of R and B and hip hop, in all it’s forms, which has opened the door to bring in a selection of guests in a way she’s not fully explored before. From the full throttle blend of grime and 80’s synth soul Noblest with Andrea Galaxy, to the reflective Sacrifice with up and coming MC Jammz, a slowjam that merges dubstep with hip house drums. The final vocal track is the languid Hazefield co-produced with Sweyn Jupiter and featuring Jessy Lanza on vocals. It’s mix of mechanic clunk and minimalist, lulling funk could only happen in 2017.
