Paradise presents: GAIKA (UK / WARP RECORDS)

Paradise is excited to present UK vocalist and producer GAIKA at The Night Cat on Saturday June 10th. The Warp Records signee will tour nationally in June, supported in Melbourne by cult Australian act friendships, avant hip hop duo Kandere and FBi radio's Tommy Codling.

Born out of his travels through the many global currents of contemporary London, GAIKA’s music is dark yet melodic, experimental yet catchy. While drawing strongly from his Brixton upbringing and his Jamaican and Grenadian heritage, GAIKA’s sound is ultimately expansive, seamlessly weaving musical motifs, vocal flows and slangs of UK, US and Caribbean music.

GAIKA is as uncompromising in his politics as his sonics, intent on expanding and exploding the ideas of what contemporary black British music is. From his debut mixtape Machine in 2015 all the way to his Warp Records release Spaghetto, GAIKA is channeling the unique synthesis of the UK’s musical make-up, firmly at the forefront of a new London.
