GAIKA is a multidisciplinary recording and visual artist, working across genres and platforms to create compelling audiovisual experiences. The technically complex worlds GAIKA creates merge the futuristic with contemporary culture shifting the paradigms of what it means to be a black musician in Britain today. A polymath by nature GAIKA’s creative output has always straddled different worlds, taking influence from academia, philosophy and political theory, culture as much as the influence of fellow musicians. On his debut album BASIC VOLUME, these themes intersect with meditations on his own identity. GAIKA has never chosen a linear path in his creative outputs.
